Filmmakers Carlos Reygadas, Andrei Zvyagintsev, Sergei Loznitza, Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio, Alex van Warmerdam and the team of Peter Brosens/Jessica Woodworth are among the 33 selected projects selected for the upcoming CineMart, the International Film Festival Rotterdam’s (IFFR) co-production market.

Filmmakers Carlos Reygadas, Andrei Zvyagintsev, Sergei Loznitza, Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio, Alex van Warmerdam and the team of Peter Brosens/Jessica Woodworth are among the 33 selected projects selected for the upcoming CineMart, the International Film Festival Rotterdam’s (IFFR) co-production market.

Carlos Reygadas who last gave us austere and majestic Silent Light, definitely tops in his filmography, will be seeking funding for Post tenebras lux. Also from Mexico’s Mantarraya Producciones we have Tree Shade (supported by the Hubert Bals Funds) by helmer Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio who gave us one of the year’s best film’s in the docu-narrative essay Alamar (check out our interview with the director earlier this year).

Other directors worth mentioning include master helmer Jan Švankmajer with Hmyz (Insects), Russian talents in The Return‘s Andrei Zvyagintsev (The Daddy) and recent Cannes selected filmmaker in Sergei Loznitza (In the Fog). Despite receiving a critical bashing, Loznitza’s insane roadtrip film My Joy was among my pleasant discoveries this year.

From the Netherlands we have The Last Days of Emma Blank‘s Alex van Warmerdam with Camiel Borgman and a pair we recently introduced you to Peter Brosens/Jessica Woodworth, they’ll be presenting Cinquième saison at the market. One filmmaker who has been appearing on the radar on more than one occasion is Yaelle Kayam – who’ll be attending the Sundance Screenwriters Lab with Providence. Here’s the complete list:
