The festival received a record 3,600-plus submissions from 20 countries for less than 100 slots, and registered approximately 20,000 attendees.
There was one high-profile sale, as Picturehouse bought domestic rights to Seth Gordon's documentary The King Of Kong and New Line took worldwide remake and life rights to some of the characters. Seventh Art Releasing bought Over The GW, and more deals are expected in the coming days and weeks.
