Daniel Brühl and Upcoming Film Fests

Who knew the world of film festivals was so expansive? I certainly didn’t, until I started researching information about upcoming film festivals that will feature films starring Daniel Brühl.

Happening now through August 13 is the 64th Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland. Closing the festival on the 13th is a project that Daniel worked on in 2009 with Jane Fonda in Paris: Et si on vivait tous ensemble? (English title: And if We All Lived Together).

Next up is the 68th Venice International Film Festival in Italy. This festival runs August 31 through September 9 and will be showing the hotly anticipated artificial intelligence film Eva.

The 59th San Sebastián International Film Festival opens September 16 with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s horror pic Intruders. The festival concludes September 24.

Sitges 2011, also known as the 44th Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantastic de Catalunya, runs from October 6 through 10 and will open with Eva.

None of the films will be in competition at these festivals, which means they are not going to be judged or in the running for any prizes.

Do any of you plan on attending any of these film festivals?  Please contact me at fansforbruhl@gmail.com.  I would love to write about your experience.

I’ve made a request for confirmation that Daniel will attend each of these events. I’ve also asked to receive photos of Daniel at these events from an assistant or associate near him. Hope I can come through for you.

UPDATE: Intruders has been added to Special Presentations at the Toronto International Film Festival (September 8-18)
