Henrik Ruben Genz' feature film "Terribly Happy" and Mikala Krogh's documentary "Everything is Relative" are in the competition program at the 43rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (4-7 July). In all, five films from Denmark will participate in the festival, which has invited Danish director Jørgen Leth to head this year's Documentary Film Jury.
"Terribly Happy", produced by Thomas Gammeltoft for Fine & Mellow Productions, will enjoy its world premiere at the festival. The film is yet another adaptation of an Erling Jepsen novel, following 2007's multi award winner "The Art of Crying" by director Peter Schønau Fog.
"Everything is Relative" in the documentary competition is a kaleidoscopic search into the relativity of human feelings and reactions. The film, whose next stop on the international festival circuit is Sheffield in August, is produced by Christian Rank for Tju-Bang Film.
Additionally, three films participate in the festival's side programs:
Natasha Arthy's "Fighter" is selected for Variety Critics' Choice, a program organized in cooperation with Variety magazine and European Film Promotion. Karlovy Vary marks the film's tenth festival participation in only six months. Producer is Johnny Andersen for Nimbus Film.
"Go with Peace Jamil" by Omar Shargawi, recently honoured as Best Director in Transylvania and recipient of the VPRO Tiger Award in Rotterdam, participates in the program Another View, and Pernille Fischer Christensen's "Dancers" will screen in Horizons. Producer on both films is Meta Louise Foldager for Zentropa.
