Cannes: Rezo Takes International Rights to ‘Voiceover’

Deal rekindles partnership with film's director Jimenez and producer Bettati

Re-enforcing the growing film axis between Chile and France, Paris-based Rezo has re-upped with Chilean director Cristian Jimenez (pictured) and producer Bruno Bettati, tying down international rights to their upcoming “Voiceover.”

Laurent Danielou’s Rezo, a Gallic producer-distributor-sales agent that has just boarded Ralph Fiennes starrer “Two Women” will handle international sales.

Rezo distributed Jimenez’s “Bonsai,” which was co-produced like “Voiceover” by Bettati’s Chile-based Jirafa Films and France Rouge Intl.

“Voiceover” is skedded to roll in November, which would put it on track to screen in post-production at Gaul’s Toulouse Latin American Film Festival’s Films in Progress section, Bettati said.

Bonsai” won Toulouse FIP in 2011, another Bettati production, Marcela Said’s “The Summer of the Flying Fish,” achieved the same distinction this year.

Both have gone to be selected by the Cannes Festival.

Said’s “Fish,” which Paris-based sales agent Alpha Violet picked up in the run-up to Cannes, world preems today in Directors’ Fortnight.

At Toulouse coming-of-age dramedy “Fish” won a special prize from the Cine Plus film channel bouquet at Gallic paybox Canal Plus’ that guarantees a Canal Plus’ pickup. The award also promises $20,000 to the French distributor of “Fish,” an offer that pretty well guarantees Gallic distribution.
