MADRID — “Los Novios bulgaros,” by Spanish director Eloy de la Iglesia, has been selected for the arthouse Panorama section at this year’s Berlin. Intl. Film Festival.

Pic is based on the novel of the same title by Eduardo Mendicutti and toplines Fernando Guillen Cuervo, Ditran Biba and Pepon Nieto.

“Los Novios” is produced by Altube Filmeak, Cuervo Films, Cartel and Conexion Sur. World rights are being handled by Spanish sales company the Pi Group.
