Just over a week ahead of the Cannes Film Festival, Swedish indie distributor NonStop Entertainment has snatched a trio of titles that will unspool on the Croisette, including Jim Jarmusch's hotly-anticipated Competition entry Only Lovers Left Alive.

NonStop picked up all rights in Scandinavia for the vampire love story, starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska, which will have its world premiere in Cannes, from HanWay Film.

The Swedish group also nabbed The Weinstein Company's Sundance Audience Award winner Fruitvale Station from director Ryan Coogler, picked for Cannes' Un Certain Regard sidebar; and, from Warp Films, Paul Wright's debut feature For Those in Peril, which screens in Critic's Week.

NonStop will bow Fruitvale in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland and For Those in Peril across the Nordic and Baltic territories.
