And here’s news on the film’s world premiere at the Locarno Film Festival which runs from August 1-11 in Locarno, Switzerland.

The Locarno Film Festival has announced its line-up today, with 13 world premieres included in the 19-film international competition. The world premieres include Jean-Claude Brisseau’s The Girl From Nowhere from France, Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel’s The Shine Of Day from Austria, Swiss documentary Image Problem, Sho Miyake’s debut feature Japan, Jem Coehn’s project Museum Hours and Ilmar Raag’s Une Estonienne A Paris staring Jeanne Moreau.

The popular Piazza Grande selections will open with Nick Love’s The Sweeney [pictured] from the UK, and close with Markus Imhoof’s Swiss co-production documentary More Than Honey. Other selections for the huge open-air screenings (which regularly attract 8,000 viewers) include Pablo Larrain’s Cannes hit No, Steven Soderbergh’s stripper story Magic Mike, the world premiere of Quelques Heures De Printemps by Stéphane Brizé, Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, and Ruby Sparks, the new film from Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, directors of Little Miss Sunshine (which famously started its success in Locarno’s Piazza Grande.)
