Mimi Steinbauer’s Radiant Films International has sold key territories at the EFM on its rom-com.
The rom-com starring Emma Greenwell and Tom Hughes screens in the market on February 9 and has gone to Japan (The Klockworx Co), Australia and New Zealand (Pinnacle Films) and Portugal (Cinemundo).
Deals also closed in the Middle East (Gulf Film), Israel (Forum), South Africa (Blue Reign), Iceland (Myndform) and Captive for airlines.
Writer-director Vivienne de Courcy makes her feature film debut on the story about an Irish girl from the countryside who takes on British high society in a celebrated flower show.
Rebecca O’Flanagan produced Dare To Be Wild with Robert Walpole, while Sarah Johnson and Chloe Kassis Crowe served as executive producers.
“Buyers at EFM have truly embraced this uplifting and gorgeously shot film which is based on the true story of Mary Reynolds, a garden designer from Ireland who went on to win the gold medal in garden design at the acclaimed Chelsea flower show,” said Steinbauer.
