Los Angeles-based international sales company Menemsha Entertainment has picked up worldwide rights to Brazilian romantic comedy Possible Loves (Amores Possiveis), directed by Sandra Werneck, which won the Latin American Jury Prize at this year's Sundance.
20th Century Fox holds the Latin American rights to the film which is represented by Brazilian distributor Lumiere EBA. According to Menemsha's Neil Friedman, he plans to take the feature to Berlin and Cannes this year.
Possible Loves is Werneck's second feature. Her directorial debut, Little Book Of Love (Pequeno Dicionario Amoroso), was produced by Lumiere EBA in 1997. The romantic comedy struck a chord with local audiences, luring up to 400,000 admissions out of only 20 prints.
Little Book Of Love was released in Switzerland in January 2001, and is set for distribution in Germany, Finland, France, Italy and Spain.
