International sales which will be handled by Celluloid Dreams will commence during this year's Toronto film festival. Celluloid president Hengameh Panahi said, "I can't find the right word to express my joy to be on board for the third time on Jacques' film as he is one of the most talented and inspiring directors today. The way he reinvented the prison drama in 'A Prophet' he is all set to do again in 'Rust and Bone" which promises to be a highly original and breathtaking love story."
