Collaborator premiered at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival where it earned the FIPRESCI International Critics’ Prize and Morse received the award for best actor.

Donovan wrote the screenplay and portrays a fading playwright who encounters a childhood neighbour in a prelude to a remarkable sequence of events that leads to a hostage crisis. Julien Favre, Ted Hope, Luca Matrundola and Pascal Vaguelsy produced.

Tribeca Film’s director of acquisitions Nick Savva brokered the deal with Hope and Charlotte Mickie of eOne Films International.
