EXCLUSIVE: Distributor has taken international rights to American football drama.


Faith-based distributor and sales agent Pure Flix has licensed all international rights on Woodlawn to Sony.

The film, which grossed $14m in the US, follows a high school American football player who embraces his talent and faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field.

Vice-president of international sales and distribution Ron Gell is screening God’s Not Dead 2 in Berlin today (February 13) at 7pm. 

Melissa Joan Hart plays a public school teacher who gets caught up in a firestorm when she mentions Jesus in class.

Gell has struck day-and-date release deals since the AFM with California Filmes in Latin America, Revolutionary Releasing/Monolith in Eastern Europe/Poland, Sycomad in South Korea, Crossroads in Australia, and Tanweer in the Middle East.

Output partner Mongrel Media holds Canadian rights and deals in the UK, South Africa and Germany are imminent.
