Casting By rights picked up by Autlook
Documentary sales agent Autlook has secured ‘rest of world’ rights for star-studded feature Casting By, which debuted at Toronto in September.
The doc, directed by Tom Donahue, pays tribute to the legacy of the late, legendary casting director Marion Dougherty and features interviews with Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood, Woody Allen and Glenn Close amongst others.
HBO picked up US TV rights to the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and the deal was negotiated through North American agent Submarine Entertainment.
Autlook will take Casting By to the European Film Market in Berlin next month, where it will represented by theatrical sales managers Salma Abdalla, Astrid Guger and Peter Jager at the Media Stand.
It was co-produced by CreativeChaos, Genmaicha and Our8s, and the producers are Kate Lacey, Tom Donahue, Ilan Arboleda and Joanna Colbert.
