Tartan Films went on a buying spree in Cannes, picking up UK and Ireland rights on eight titles.

The titles acquired are: P2, Mala Noche, Breath, Time, The Good, The Bad and The Weird, I Am a Cyborg But That's Okay, and - as previously reported - Silent Light and Paranoid Park.

P2 was won in a UK bidding war with Summit Entertainment, in a deal negotiated by Tartan's head of acquisitions Jane Giles and Summit's president David Garrett.

Franck Khalfoun's stalker/horror film stars Rachel Nichols and Wes Bentley in the story of a woman who is imprisoned in her office carpark.

Mala Noche is Gus Van Sant's now available and restored first feature about a man who falls in love with an illegal Mexican immigrant.

Kim Ki-duk's Breath is about a death row prisoner who falls in love. Tartan also picked up his previous film Time, an obsessive love story. Tartan has a long history with the Korean director.

Tartan also continues its relationship with Kim Jee-Woon by pre-buying rights to The Good, The Bad and The Weird, his oriental Western set in 1930s Manchuria, shooting now.

Likewise, Tartan continues its streak with Park Chan Wook by taking on I'm A Cyborg But That's OK, a love story set in a psychiatric hospital.

As previously reported, Tartan also bought Cannes competition prize winners Carlos Reygadas' Silent Light and Gus Van Sant's Paranoid Park.

The slate was bought by Giles and Tartan managing director Laura DeCasto.

DeCasto said in a statement 'I'm thrilled that we've acquired eight films at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and particularly with the mix of titles, which I think perfectly demonstrates Tartan's range and ambition. When you throw into that mix the likes of Harmony Korine's Mister Lonely and Nicolas Philibert's follow-up to Etre Et Avoir - Back To Normandy, as well as Michael Haneke's English language remake of Funny Games and Chaotic Ana, the latest project from our long time collaborator Julio Medem, it makes for a tremendously exciting year ahead for us.'
