EXCLUSIVE: Company’s founder Stephanie Trepanier [pictured] is at the EFM repping SXSW title Rewind This! and two new projects.
Canada’s Evokative Films is reorientating its operations towards international sales consultancy.
Evokative’s founder Stephanie Trepanier is at the European Film Market in Berlin representing Josh Johnson’s VHS documentary Rewind This!, which will receive its world premiere at the upcoming SXSW, and is produced by Carolee Mitchell and Christopher Palmer.
Trepanier is also at the EFM with two new projects: Chelsea Peters’ slasher film The Night Stalkers, produced by Ryan Turek and set to shoot this summer, and supernatural horror-romance Spring, the sophomore feature from filmmaking duo Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson whose critically acclaimed debut feature Resolution premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Spring is also looking for an Italian co-producer at the market.
“My years of experience with film programming at the Fantasia International Film Festival, as well as with Evokative’s acquisitions, have allowed me to develop a great contact base, alongside an accumulated knowledge of each sales agent’s strengths and tastes,” commented Trepanier.
As market director of Fantasia’s Frontières International Co-Production Market, Trepanier is also currently working on curating film projects for the second edition of the market, which runs July 25-28. Project submission deadline is March 26.
