The Karlovy Vary International Festival has announced the extensive programming for its 48th edition, which runs June 28-July 6.
Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo" -- starring Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris -- will open the festival,
"This strikingly poetic fantasy story about the power and resolve to make any kind of sacrifice for a loved one stars Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris," the festival said. "Gondry’s works have regularly featured on the Karlovy Vary programme, thus it is a great honour for the festival to be able to screen his latest title in the presence of the filmmaker himself."
The main section of the festival will include six world and seven international premieres, with new films from six returning directors – two of whom have already won Crystal Globes for Best Film at Karlovy Vary in recent years. The film's include Krzysztof Krauze and Joanna Kos-Krauze's "Papusza," Yossi Madmony's "A Place In Heaven," Jan Hřebejk's "Honeymoon," Lance Edmands' Tribeca premiere "Bluebird," Philippe Godeau’s "11.6," Xavier Bermúdez's "The Value of Time," and notably Ben Wheatley's follow up to "Sightseers," "A Field In England."
"A Field in England" will screen on July 4th, a day before it becomes the first UK film to be released simultaneously in cinemas, on DVD, free TV and VOD.
