Sundance: Nick Cave Pic Among European Films Receiving Sales Push at Fest

European Film Promotion backs sales campaigns of 12 European films

LONDON — Marketing support body European Film Promotion is to back the sales campaigns of 12 European films at the Sundance Film Festival, including “20,000 Days on Earth,” a fictionalized day in the life of singer Nick Cave.

EFP’s Film Sales Support program covers up to 45% of the cost of the pics’ promotional campaigns at the festival, and puts a particular emphasis on sales companies’ networking with North American and international buyers.

Seven feature films and five documentaries from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Germany and the U.K. share €41,380 ($56,541). The majority of the films are competing in the festival’s World Dramatic and World Documentary Competition sections. They are represented by 10 different sales agents.

As well as Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s “20,000 Days on Earth,” the musical film “God Help the Girl,” by Stuart Murdoch of Glasgow band Belle and Sebastian, is being supported. Both are sold by Hanway Films.

The supported films also include Nadav Schirman’s gripping documentary “The Green Prince,” based on the bestselling memoir “Son of Hamas.” The pic is being represented by Global Screen.

Three Norwegian films are taking part: Mona Fastvold’s “Sleepwalker,” repped by LevelK, Eskil Vogt’s “Blind,” repped by Versatile, and Tommy Wirkola’s “Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead,” repped by Elle Driver.

Other films include Oskar Santos’ “Zip&Zap and the Marble Gang” (sales: The Film Factory); Goran Olsson’s “Concerning Violence” (sales: Films Boutique); Hupert Sauper’s “We Come as Friends” (sales: Le Pacte); Berit Madsen’s “Sepideh” (sales: LevelK); Noaz Deshe’s “White Shadow” (sales: Premium Films); and Hong Khaou’s “Lilting” (sales: Protagonist Pictures).
