Byron A Martin Productions’ crime drama Wolverine Hotel will represent Canada at the Los Cabos International Film Festival and Co-Production Forum.
The film went through the Atlantic Film Festival’s Strategic Partners co-production market in Halifax recently and stars Riley Keough (pictured) of the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road.
Patricia Chica directs and will attend the Mexican event later this month with producer Byron Martin, who said his primary goals weren to confirm a co-production partner and sign a sales agent.
Wolverine Hotel is based on a screenplay by Canadian Andrew Lynch about three drug addicts trapped in a grim environment.
“Byron A Martin has been selected for our inaugural project exchange programme,” said Strategic Partners director Laura Mackenzie.
“He embodies the world-class talent we have here in Canada and the project he has in development is impressive and perfectly suited for co-production.”
Martin and Chica’s first collaboration Serpent’s Lullaby played in Short Film Corner in Cannes earlier this year.
The Los Cabos International Film Festival is scheduled to run from November 12-16.
