Japan's Showgate buys into Bergdorf's
Fortissimo Films has sold Japanese rights to Matthew Miele’s documentary feature Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf’s to Showgate Japan.
The film tells the story of New York’s famous Fifth Avenue store Bergdorf Goodman and includes appearances by fashion legends Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Louboutin.
Fortissimo hold all rights outside of North America to the film, which Entertainment One will distribute in the US in mid-2013. The deal with Showgate was negotiated by Fortissimo’s Winnie Lau and Showgate’s Chizu Ogiya.
“It’s wonderful to find such an enthusiastic and passionate distributor in Showgate to bring this fun, classy and very entertaining iconic fashion powerhouse to the Japanese audience,” said Lau.
