EXCLUSIVE: Visit Films has filled out its Sundance sales slate, adding international rights to People, Places, Things and The Strongest Man as well as world rights excluding Australia and New Zealand to Sam Klemke’s Time Machine.
New York-based president Ryan Kampe and his team will represent the films in Park City next week where all three will receive their world premiere prior to market premieres at the EFM in Berlin.
The trio joins Visit’s previously announced sales title It Follows, David Robert Mitchell’s genre film that screens in Park City At Midnight.
Jim Strouse’s comedy People, Places, Things plays in the World Dramatic Competition and stars Jemaine Clement from Flight Of The Conchords as a graphic artist who must grapple with single fatherhood after he walks in on his girlfriend in bed with another man.
Stephanie Allyne, Regina Hall and Jessica Williams round out the key cast. ICM Partners and Cinetic represent North American rights.
Matthew Bate’s documentary Sam Klemke’s Time Machine premieres in New Frontier and charts the life of the eponymous everyman and his efforts to chronicle his entire and allegedly unspectacular life on camera.
Kenny Riches directed comedy The Strongest Man (pictured), which screens in the Next section and centres on a Miami-based construction worker and his bizarre escapades. Robert “Meatball” Lorie and Paul Chamberlain star. XYZ Films handles US rights.
It Follows screened in Cannes and Toronto in 2014 and stars Maika Monroe as a 19-year-old plagued by visions following a strange sexual encounter.
The film won New Wave Best Film and best screenplay at Fantastic Fest.
