Leading independent Benelux distributor Cineart has revealed details of its latest round of acquisitions.

Adding to its roster of this year’s Cannes competition titles, the company has now picked up Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive (sold by Sierra/Affinity.) Cineart has also swooped to pre-buy Refn’s next film, Only God Forgives (sold by Gaumont and Wild Bunch and starring Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas).

The Benelux buyer has also pre-bought the English-language remake of Refn’s Pusher, directed by Luis Prieto and starring Agyness Deyn and Richard Coyle. (This is also sold by Gaumont.)

Meanwhile, from Wild Bunch, Cineart has also taken Benelux rights on Michel Hazanavicius’s The Artist (which won the best actor in Cannes for Jean Dujardan.) Also from Wild Bunch, Cineart has bought Asterix & Obelix 3D: God Save Britannia and Valerie Donzelli’s critical hit Declaration Of War.

Another recent pick up is La Fée (The Fairy), directed by Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, and Bruno Romy and sold by MK2.

Among local titles, Cineart has pre-bought Camille Borgman, the latest from cult Dutch auteur Alex Van Warmerdam. Graniet Film produces, and the project was presented at Rotterdam’s CineMart earlier this year. The financing is currently being completed with the aim of Van Warmerdam shooting early next year.

In recent months, Cineart has also pre-bought such high profile titles as Luc Besson’s The Lady (from EuropaCorp) and Roman Polanski’s Carnage.

“Cineart is a company that does quality film, regardless of the size or the provenance,” stated Marc Smit, Chairman and Co-General Manager. “Within that, we have the usual authors but also we have sometimes family quality titles.”
