Oncinema.com’s Ioncinephile of the Month feature focuses on an emerging filmmaker from the world of cinema.

Michel Franco’s After Lucia (see pic above) and Antonio CamposSimon Killer will be making the Los Angeles premieres accompanied by the best title to come out of the Main Comp at this year’s Cannes edition in Sergei Loznitsa’s In the Fog. This trio will be joined by a trio of gems that recently premiered at Tiff in: Maja Miloš’ Clip, Gabriela Pichler’s Eat Sleep Die and Tobias Lindholm’s A Hijacking.
