Berlin-based sales outfit Pluto Film has secured deals on two of its titles which are screening at Sarajevo Film Festival this week.
Rasko Miljkovic’s children’s’ adventure film The Witch Hunters, which premiered at TIFF Kids International Film Festival in March, where it won the Young People’s Jury Award, has sold to six territories: North America (Parade Deck Films), Germany (Der Filmverleih), China (Lemontree), Denmark (Angel Films), Lithuania (Skalvija), and Poland (New Horizons).
Taramount Film will distribute the title locally in Serbia and Bosnia, with a release planned for September.

It is playing in Sarajevo’s Kids strand this week.
