London-based High Point Films has closed further deals on Martin Koolhoven’s Winter In Wartime.

Following its recent success at the International Rome Film Festival, where it won a Silver Marc’Aurelio, it has now sold into Family Films for France and Atlas for Germany. It is understood more deals are pending.

The film is an epic tale about a 14-year-old boy during the last year of the Second World War in Holland. It has been a major box office hit in Holland,  where it attracted 50,000 spectators during its opening weekend, and was recently confirmed as the Netherlands’ official Oscar candidate.

High Point’s Carey Fitzgerald said:  “There is a sense of real momentum gathering around this film, as more and more people discover it, propelling it forward to a point which we hope will be even more of a triumph than before.”
