AFM to screen 76 world premieres

Notable preems include 'Nous York," 'Charles Swan," 'Pawn'

Charlie Sheen starrer “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III” and Nicolas Cage thriller “The Frozen Ground” are among pics set to preem at the American Film Market, which has set 76 world premieres during its Oct. 31-Nov. 7 run.

Last year’s market saw a notable 61% increase in buyers from China and this year is expected to also see a stronger contingent from Asia and Latin America. In December, the film market made a deal to remain based in Santa Monica until at least 2017, after foreign buyers protested the mart’s brief flirtation with moving to downtown Los Angeles.

A total 420 films will screen, with more than 300 showing for first time at a film market, including “The ABCs of Death” from Magnolia Pictures; “Ginger and Rosa,” starring Christina Hendricks and Elle Fanning, from the Match Factory; and Dustin Hoffman-directed “Quartet.”

“Charles Swan III,” directed by Roman Coppola, also stars Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman and is handled by Independent, while “Frozen Ground,” from Voltage, co-stars John Cusack and Vanessa Hudgens.

Other world preems include “Cottage Country,” starring Malin Akerman and Lucy Punch, from VMI Worldwide; “The Numbers Station,” starring Cusack and Malin Akerman, from Content; and “Summer in February,” starring Dominic Cooper and Emily Browning, from Speranza13 Media.

A number of titles screening were well-received at recent fests, including “Thanks for Sharing” from Voltage, “What Maisie Knew” from Fortissimo and “Spring Breakers” from Kinology.
