A Banner Year for Sundance Film Festival Deals
On the final day of the Sundance Film Festival, the scorecard stands at 30. That’s how many films were picked up for domestic distribution during the festival.
“This is probably the best in the last three years for films that actually sell during the festival,” Arianna Bocco, head of acquisitions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films in New York, told Crain’s New York Business. “It’s clear that it went from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market.”
Yesterday’s acquisitions included Miranda July’s THE FUTURE, purchased by Roadside Attractions, and Evan Glodell’s feature film debut BELLFLOWER, an apocalyptic love story about two friends on the brink of adulthood, which was snapped up by Oscilloscope.
Here’s a complete list of the festival movies picked up for distribution and headed your way soon.
