EXCLUSIVE: Autlook to work with Films Transit on selling London Film Festival title The Punk Singer.
Vienna-based sales outfit Autlook is to handle worldwide theatrical, festivals, digital and “all rights” deals for Sini Anderson’s punk rock documentary The Punk Singer.
Autlook will co-represent the doc with Quebec-based Films Transit - part of an ongoing deal - for all rights outside North America.
The film received its world premiere at this year’s SXSW and profiles outspoken feminist icon Kathleen Hanna, singer with Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews.
The doc will have its European premiere this week [Oct 13] at the BFI London Film Festival, where Autlook CEO Peter Jager will be present during the Buyers and Sellers Screenings.
Films Transit president Jan Röfekamp said: “The Riot Grrrl Movement continues to be an important subject and we think there is a wide audience for this film.”
Sundance Selects acquired North American rights and a theatrical US release is planned by IFC Films on Nov 29.
