Aditya Assarat’s HI-SO and Dominga Sotomayor’s Thursday till Sunday mark first acquisitions.
London based curatorial outfit Day for Night is expanding into distribution.
The company’s first two theatrical titles are Aditya Assarat’s Busan and Berlinale entry HI-SO and Dominga Sotomayor’s debut Thursday till Sunday.
Company founder Sonali Joshi will handle acquisitions and is looking to theatrically release four titles per year.
Post-tsunami set drama HI-SO gets a UK release in March, while Chilean director Sotomayor’s debut Thursday Till Sunday, which won the Tiger Award at Rotterdam last year, will be released in April.
Day for Night founder Sonali Joshi said: “We’re really excited about this new venture into distribution which has evolved as a natural extension of our film curatorial activities.
“Our aim is to develop a slate of films that represents some of the freshest and most distinctive titles from around the world - a curated library of films with a particular focus on outstanding up-and-coming filmmakers.”
Day for Night hosts the Nordic Film Festival in London and for two years produced the Pan-Asia Film Festival (London, 2011-2012), commissioned by Asia House.
