The Montreal World Film Festival on Tuesday announced a European-heavy competition lineup that includes no U.S. titles, though American entries have been booked for out-of-competition screenings. Among the 22 in-competition films unveiled for the festival's 30th edition (August 24-September 4) are Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland's "Pedersen: High-School Teacher"; Philippe Lioret's "Don't Worry, I'm Fine" from France; Swedish director Maria von Heland's "Search"; Hans-Ulrich Schlumpf's "Ultima Thule" from Switzerland; and Spanish director Carlos Iglesias' "Crossing Borders." Canada's "The Secret Life of Happy People," the Stephane Lapointe-directed drama that closes the festival, is the lone North American entry. Reuters reports.
