Producers Auli Mantila and Jussi Rantamäki will be in Cannes film festival during 14th and 19th May. Our aim is to promote our upcoming feature film Things We Do for Love. The film is directed by Matti Ijäs and it is a Finnish-Norwegian coproduction.
“A shy man falls in love. The woman is beautiful, but the timing is awful: her jealous ex-con ex-husband has come to town, and she is in debt for her brother-in-law loving her in secret. What follows is a genuine mess of all the things we do for love.”
Cannes Cinefondation 2010 winners Juho Kuosmanen and JP Passi will also be there to see first-timer feature films while working on their first feature film’s script. As a result of our win in Cinefondation the film will premiere in Cannes. The year is not yet decided 🙂
Hannaleena Hauru, whose films have been selected a couple of times to Critics’ Week (Whispering in a Friend’s Mouth 2010, If I Fall 2007) joins the festival as a producer this time. She has produced two short films which will be screened in Critics’ Week Nisi Masa -selection
See you there!
