Cannes Film Fest 2019: Velvet Underground, Haynes’ First Documentary

In the first secret project to hit the Croisette, buyers will get to see footage from an untitled Todd Haynes documentary about seminal rock group The Velvet Underground.

Footage from the music-themed film, which marks Haynes’ first documentary, will be screened Thursday afternoon at the Cinema Olympia in Cannes and is expected to ignite a frenzy among doc-hungry distributors looking for the next Amy.

Cinetic and Submarine — which recently sold such big-ticket Sundance docs as Knock Down the House and American Factory, respectively — are teaming to sell the untitled Velvet Underground doc.
