Gaul’s TF1 Intl. has been having a dynamic Cannes market under the new leadership of Sabine Chemaly, inking high-profile sales deals on a pair of titles screening in Cannes’ Official Selection: Brandon Cronenberg’s feature debut “Antiviral,” and late French helmer Claude Miller’s “Therese D.”

Cronenberg’s Un Certain Regard-preeming “Antiviral” has sold to Momentum (U.K.) and CCC (Japan). A U.S. deal is in negotiations. Produced by Canada’s Rhombus Media, pic stars Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Malcolm McDowell and Douglas Smith. UGC will distribute in France; Alliance Films will release in Canada.

TF1 Intl. has closed all-rights distribution deals on Cannes fest closer “Therese D” with Mongrel (Canada), Icon (Australia), Golem (Spain), Imovision (Brazil), Pathe (Switzerland), Lusomundo (Portugal), Word of Mouth (Greece), Bir Film (Turkey) and HBO (Latin America). Chemaly said her team is in advanced negotiations to ink the U.K. and U.S. sales.

Another buzz title on their slate, the Australian surfing drama “Drift,” sold to Koch Media for Italy.

Chemaly also announced that the next Philippe Claudel film, “Avant l’hiver,” starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Daniel Auteuil, has already pre-sold to various territories.
