EXCLUSIVE: Roadshow Films adds rights to apocalyptic thriller by Zak Hilditch.

Roadshow Films has picked up US and UK rights to apocalyptic thriller These Final Hours from Celluloid Nightmares.

Roadshow, which already had Australian rights, will sell the film on to third party distributors in each territory.

Joel Pearlman, managing director of Village Roadshow division Roadshow Films, did the deal with Celluloid’s Hengameh Panahi, who has also inked a separate Swiss deal with Praesens.

Zak Hilditch’s feature debut explores the question “What would you do on the last day on Earth?” through the eyes of a self-obsessed young man, played by Nathan Phillips, on his way to the party-to-end-all-parties.

The well-received thriller earned Hilditch the Critics’ Award for Best Australian feature at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
