The distributor has taken North American rights to Jason Banker’s AFI FEST selection and genre-bending film based on the life experiences of co-writer and star Amy Everson.

Felt premiered at Fantastic Fest and will open in April both theatrically and across ancillary platforms.

The story centres on an artist who uses a particular form of her work to help herself recover from a rape.

Banker produced the film and directed from a story he devised with Everson.

Amplify’s Dylan Marchetti brokered the deal with Nate Bolotin and Mette-Marie Katz of XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers.

  • Video Services Corp has acquired Canadian rights to Patch Town. Craig Goodwill directed the comedy adventure based on his short of the same name about an orphan, a mother and a child-catcher.
