Mongrel takes four for Canada
Hungry Canadian buyer Mongrel Media has snapped up four more films in Cannes, taking the competition trio Jimmy P., Like Father, Like Son and Young And Beautiful as well as Un Certain Regard entry Bastards.
Mongrel will release the films in Canada in 2014 and previously acquired Canadian rights to Inside Llewyn Davis, La Grande Bellezza and Blue Is The Warmest Colour.
