Media Luna New Films has taken on worldwide distribution rights to Blessed Events by Berlin-based director Isabelle Stever, which will receive its world premiere in Toronto’s Contemporary World Cinema section.

Stever’s second feature is based on the eponymous short by Anke Stelling, about a young woman who gets pregnant after a one-night stand and discovers the father is keen to start a family.

Moneypenny Filmproduktion MD Sigrid Hoerner produced the film, which will be released in Germany through Munich-based Movienet. After Toronto, Blessed Events will screen at the Torino Film Festival.
