Kevin Macdonald’s Marley, a documentary about Bob Marley produced by Tuff Gong Films/Shangri-La, has gone in latest deals to Australia/New Zealand (Roadshow), Latin America (HBO Latin America), and Portugal (Lusomundo/Film & TV House) with other territories now under discussion.
After screening first footage at EFM, Fortissimo previously sold the film to territories including France, Switzerland, Germany and South Africa.
Marley will be released later this year to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the reggae legend’s death.
For David Gelb’s popular documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a Berlinale Culinary Cinema selection, Fortissimo has now concluded deals with France (Pretty Pictures), Israel (Shani Films), Benelux (Cinemien/ABC), German-speaking Europe (Koch), Singapore (Golden Village) and Taiwan (Joint Entertainment).
And finally, Vallanzasca has sealed more deals to Australia/New Zealand (Madman) and Portugal (Lusomundo).
Fortissimo Chairman Michael J. Werner said, “We are delighted by the enthusiastic response we have received from buyers across the world. Each film is wonderfully unique with universal appeal. The positive response from international buyers reflects the confidence the Fortissimo team have in each of these films.”
