Meanwhile Maywin Films has acquired Tear This Heart Out for CIS and the Baltic states. Fox released the film throughout Latin America to considerable success according to FilmSharks and Lionsgate holds North American rights.
Albany Films acquired French-speaking territories on Jean-Claude Janer’s French coming-of-age comedy Sister Welsh Nights. Swedish title Guidance has gone to Smart Cinema for Benelux.
Rafa Lara’s Colombian kidnap drama La Milagrosa has virtually sold out, with rights going to Splendid for German-speaking territories and Benelux, Maywin for CIS and the Baltic, Binci Media for China and LAPTV for pay TV across Latin America. Goldmine Pictures has scheduled a North American release on more than 80 prints for this summer.
Mubi, the online film library formerly known as The Auteurs, has closed a deal with FilmSharks for VOD release. The deal includes the back catalogue from Latin American producers Alta Vista (Amores Perros, Nicotina) and Patagonik (Nine Queens, El Aura).
