Distributor will hold further talks about the doc with buyers in Toronto.
UK-based sales agent Dogwoof has secured sales of Dior and I by Frédéric Tcheng, co-director of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.
All rights deals were closed in Japan (Open Sesame, Alcine, Bunkamura); Australia and New Zealand (Madman); Hong Kong (Edko); and Taiwan (Sky Dig Entertainment).
Deals were brokered by Ana Vicente at Dogwoof and further talks are being held at the Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 4-14) with buyers from France, Benelux, and Italy amongst others.
Open Sesame’s Kaho Nakane said a spring release of the film is planned in Japan, where “Dior is one of the most popular and prestigious brands”.
The documentary follows Raf Simons as the newly appointed creative director for the legendary fashion house, and his creation and unveiling of the prestigious Dior Haute Couture Collection. The film promises an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the atelier and the demanding world of high fashion.
Dior and I premiered at Tribeca Film Festival and Dogwoof acquired from Submarine at Cannes this year.
The film will be released in North America by eOne early 2015, with other foreign territories, including Dogwoof in the UK to follow.
