Ben Roberts has wasted little time capitalising on SPC’s deal for North American rights to Malik Bendjelloul’s opening night film.

UK rights have gone to StudioCanal while Madman will distribute in Australia and New Zealand.

Roberts negotiated terms with Berenice Fugard and Alison Meese for Studio Canal and Paul Wiegard at Madman.

A second P&I screening has been arranged for Sunday evening (22) ahead of the EFM screening in Berlin next month.

Searching For Sugar Man is a Red Box Films and Passion Pictures production in association with Canfield Pictures and The Documentary Company.
