The Canadian distribution will start a platform release in Toronto before expanding across the country.

Knife Fight premiered at Tribeca last year and stars Rob Lowe as a maverick political strategist whose methods are pushed to breaking point. Carrie-Anne Moss and Julie Bowen also star.

Bill Guttentag directed Knife Fight from a screenplay he co-wrote with Chris Lehane, who served as special assistant counsel to President
Bill Clinton and as press secretary to Al Gore during the 2000 presidential campaign.

IFC holds US rights and Myriad Pictures handles international sales.
