Epic Films is working to maximize its opportunities at this year’s 2015 Cannes Film Market with our feature film MALCONTENT. We are joining 11,000 film industry professionals for ten days of action at the 2014 Marché du Film.

Epic Films will advance our other projects, discover new ones and be a part of the discussion during Cannes.

We are so very excited to for upcoming 2015 Award Winners. Check out Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’ to open festival:

GRACE OF MONACO

Nicole Kidman‘s “Grace of Monaco,” a biopic about the galvanizing actor-turned-royal originally scheduled for 2013, will open the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. It marks the second straight year that a high-profile, star-studded film originally set for an end-of-year release will land in the coveted Cannes spot the following year, after “The Great Gatsby” underwent a similar shift in 2013.

“Monaco” has been the subject of release-date musical chairs by U.S. distributor the Weinstein Co. After first being announced as a Nov. 27 release last year, the Olivier Dahan-directed biopic skipped the early-fall festivals and was eventually pushed to March 2014, as Dahan and Harvey Weinstein battled over the cut. (Dahan had told the French press that Weinstein wants a “sanitized” version of the film.)

The shift to a Cannes premiere is especially notable because it was at the festival a full year before that Harvey Weinstein made a big push for “Monaco” at a special event he held for his then-upcoming summer and fall releases — they also included “Mandela” and “August: Osage County” — even bringing out Kidman to flog the upcoming film.
