IFC Films has acquired North American rights to Cooper Raiff’s SXSW narrative feature grand jury prize winner Shithouse.
The distributor plans an autumn release on the college romance about a friendless college freshman contemplating a transfer to be closer to his mother and sister when he meets someone special.
Raiff stars alongside Dylan Gelula (The First Girl I Loved, Her Smell), Amy Landecker (Transparent, A Serious Man), and Logan Miller (Love Simon, The Stanford Prison Experiment).
Shithouse producers are Raiff, Divi Crockett and Will Youmans.
Arianna Bocco, executive vice-president of acquisitions and productions at IFC Films, brokered the deal with ICM Partners on behalf of the filmmakers and hailed Raiff as “an extraordinary new voice”.
