Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk’s Ukrainian co-production Pamfir is one of 49 European films at this year’s Marché du Film to receive Film Sales Support (FSS) from the European Film Promotion (EFP) network.
Twenty-one sales companies are receiving a total of €78,000 (£81,280) for promotion and marketing campaigns of the 49 titles. Thirty-three of the films are completed, with a further 13 still in later stages of production.
Pamfir is Ukrainian director Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk’s debut feature, and plays in Directors’ Fortnight at the festival. A co-production between Ukraine, Poland, France, Germany, Chile and Luxembourg, it follows a man forced to give up his honest work in order to help his family. It is the first time FSS has supported a Ukrainian title.
Three titles playing in Competition are supported: Albert Serra’s Pacification, Ruben Ostlund’s Triangle Of Sadness, and Tarik Saleh’s Boy From Heaven.
There are also two Un Certain Regard titles: Alexandru Belc’s Metronom and Lola Quivoron’s Rodeo.
FSS is supported by Creative Europe MEDIA.
