US art house genre sales company Yellow Veil Pictures has finalised a deal at TIFF for worldwide sales rights to A.T. White’s feature debut Starfish.
The US-UK film will receive its world premiere at Fantastic Fest next week and stars Virginia Gardner, who stars in recent TIFF world premiere Halloween.
We Are Tessellate, Spellbound Entertainment and 3ROUNDBURST Productions produced the genre film about a young woman who struggles with the death of her best friend, while trying to unravel clues left behind in order to stop a monstrous end to the world as we know it.
“Starfish, in particular, A.T.’s vision, is nothing short of remarkable,” said Yellow Veil Pictures co-owner Joe Yanick. “[It manages] to coalesce varying styles without losing sight of its emotional throughline. It’s like It Follows by the way of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. We can’t wait for this film to stun audiences in Austin.”
Yanick’s team brokered the deal with producers Aida Bernal and Aldo Jovan Diaz of Spellbound Entertainment, and Edgar Romero with 3ROUNDBURST Productions.
The Yellow Veil Pictures slate includes worldwide sales on Tillman Singer’s Luz, Josh Lobo’s upcoming debut A Man In The Dark, and Sam Marine and Michael Borowiec’s Man Underground follow-up, Desert Witch. The company launched at Fantasia International Film Festival earlier this year.
