Key Players in the 2012 Cannes Film Market: Protagonist Pictures

Ben Roberts’ U.K Sales house Protagonist Pictures might only have one pic playing on the Croisette – but it’s the highly touted Special screening of Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers which should give the Directors’ Fortnight its most buzz-worthy title. In pre-production, we’ve got John Michael Mcdonagh’s Calvary and Kevin MacDonald’s How I Live Now giving them a strong presence in 2013. Not too shabby.
