Ryan Kampe’s sales slate includes Australia’s foreign language film submission Jirga, Locarno Golden Leopard winner A Land Imagined, Los Angeles Film Festival award winners This Teacher and Spell, TIFF Costa Rican comedy Helmet Heads, San Sebastian Film Festival Horizontes winner A Family Submerged, Diane, and Merce Cunningham dance documentary If The Dancer Dances.
