Norwegian distributor Fidalgo has picked up a number of new titles, including two films fresh from Venice; Aleksey Chupov’s Captain Volkonogov Escaped, sold by Memento; and Teemu Nikki’s The Blind Man Who Did Not Want to See Titanic.
The Blind Man…, which won the Orizzonti audience award, is sold by Intramovies but the Nordic rights were held by the producers at Finland’s It’s Alive Films and the Norwegian deal was negotiated directly with them.
Fidalgo has also acquired the Norwegian rights for Radu Jude’s Berlinale Golden Bear winner Bad Luck Banging Or Loony Porn, sold by Heretic.
Another recent deal was struck for Cannes Critics Week closing film, Paris-set love story A Story Of Love And Desire, directed by Leyla Bouzid and sold by Pyramide.
Finally, Fidalgo has also acquired wine documentary Sparkling: The Story Of Champagne is directed by Frank Mannion and sold by Mannion’s Swipe Films.
