Filmcore (UK) Ltd (Ferda’s production arm) produces alongside New Zealand-based production and international sales company Black Mandala.

The film is set for release in the US on October 1, 2022.
Ferda commented: “It’s worrying that youngsters can be easily lured and pressured into conforming to artificial standards set by social media influencers and celebrities in a desperate need to be accepted by their peers. I felt compelled to spotlight this issue by making Deinfluencer, and giving a horror spin to it.”
