Savage Film producer Bart Van Langendonck is in Cannes to present his Brussels-based production outfit’s new three-year slate. In addition to brand new projects from the directors the company started with five years ago (Michaël R Roskam and Bram Van Paesschen), young filmmakers such as Hans Van Nuffel, Matthias Schoenaerts and Robin Pront are now joining the producer's growing talent pool to develop their own feature-length projects.
Equator is the second feature by Hans Van Nuffel, the 2011 European Film Award Discovery of the Year winner (for Oxygen). The Faithful (Le fidèle) is the second feature film project from Oscar-nominated director Michaël R Roskam (Bullhead), while Franky will be the directorial debut of critically acclaimed Flemish actor Matthias Schoenaerts.
