Cannes 2021 Deals: The Complete List of Festival Acquisitions

Last year, the pandemic forced organizers to call off the full-fledged Cannes Film Festival. This year, the festival is staging a comeback and will welcome industry players, including distributors looking for completed films at the buzzy festival, back to the Croissette July 6-17.

There are early signs that this year’s Cannes could be defined by robust market activity. Some of the buzzy titles that scored early distribution include Leos Carax’s English-language debut and festival opener “Annette.” Amazon scooped that up four years ago. Another Cannes favorite director, Paul Verhoeven, saw his latest effort acquired by IFC Films last week: lesbian nun drama “Benedetta.”

Last year’s Cannes included a list of official selections that allowed films to display the festival’s laurels, including Oscar winner “Another Round.” But actual activity was limited to a very abbreviated “special edition” staged in October, plus an online Marche du Film over the summer.

Below find a constantly updated list of acquisitions, beginning with the most recently announced. Note that the list does not include titles from the Marche du Film or Directors’ Fortnight.

This marks IFC’s fourth partnership with Hansen-Løve; the company most recently distributed her 2016 Silver Bear winner “Things to Come.”

Title: “Benedetta”

Section: In Competition
