Cologne, Germany – In Your Name, the new feature from Dutch director Marco van Geffen (Among Us) has won Cannes’ L’Atelier prize for best project. The Cannes L’Atelier selects fifteen in-development projects each year and helps arrange meetings between the projects’ filmmakers and interested industry professionals.
In Your Name is set in a newly built town in Holland and focuses on a Dutch couple who – with their new house and new baby – believe they have achieved their dreams. But when the baby dies suddenly, their lives are torn apart.
Van Geffen co-wrote In Your Name with Jolein Laarman, his screenwriting collaborator on van Geffen’s feature debut Among Us. In Your Name is conceived as the second film in the director’s planned Vinex Triology about the drama of the “happy family.”
Lemming Film is producing In Your Name with backing from the Dutch Film Fund. Elle Driver is handling world sales. The film is expected to deliver for Spring 2013, with Cineart handling release in the Benelux territories.
