Samuel Goldwyn and Fireworks have bagged Peter Sollet's Long Way Home ahead of its Un Certain Regard screening for their US joint distribution venture IDP.

The title - sold by Studio Canal's division Wild Bunch which also co-produced along with Forensic Films - has been hotly pursued by US distributors.

Long Way Home has also been sold to Momentum for the UK, Hopscotch for Australia and New Zealand and Seville for Canada. The film is a follow-up to Sollet's critically-acclaimed graduation short Five Feet And Rising, which won the jury prize in Sundance as well as the Cinefondation award in Cannes in 2000.
