Swipe Films has sold UK distribution rights to Beyond The Fire to Met Film Distribution.

The deal was negotiated by Frank Mannion of Swipe Films and Patrick Fischer on behalf of Met Film Distribution.

Written and directed by Maeve Murphy, Beyond the Fire is a love story and stars Scot Williams and Cara Seymour. The film was shot in and around London and Liverpool.

Produced by Helen Alexander with independent finance, Beyond the Fire will have its UK premiere at the London Independent Film Festival next month. It will be on general release in the UK from April.

Frank Mannion of Swipe Films said: 'Met Film Distribution has proven with its impressive release of Heavy Load that it's a dynamic new presence on the UK distribution scene. I am confident that Met Film will reach the audience Beyond the Fire deserves through its innovative marketing techniques.'
