Coproduction Office has sold its Belgian animation A Town Called Panic to a further seven territories after closing a deal with Zeitgeist for the US last week.
The film, which had its world premiere in the official selection at this year’s Cannes, has now sold to Nomad (Italy), Corianderfilm (Norway), ACFC (Czech Republic), Szeuz Films (Hungary), Cinema Nouveau (Estonia), MIP (Ireland) and Glob Com (Romania). Negotiations for further territories, including Germany and Japan are ongoing.
The stop-motion film tells the story of Horse, Indian and Cowboy, plastic toy figurines, who set out in search of their enemies, the Atlantans, a colony of traitorous underwater sea creatures.
The film was pre-bought by Frenetic Films for Switzerland and sold to further distributors, including Optimum Releasing for the UK, at Cannes.
