Multiple previous participants in the Producers on the Move program have films in competition in Cannes including Didar Domehri and Vladimer Katcharava who produced Eva Husson’s “Girls of the Sun.” Other alums with Cannes pictures include Tiziana Soudani who produced “Happy as Lazzaro,” and Labina Mitevska who was a producer on “The Wild Pear Tree.”
