Reeseville is due to open in the US through Zenpix. Anne BReal opened last year through ScreenMedia Ventures and Dopamine wasreleased last year through the Sundance Film Series.
"A lot of people were sayingit was a bit slow this year, but I guess that speaks well of the quality levelof Zenpix product as we were very busy this year," Jackson said of the AFM in astatement.
"Also, I look forward toNovember, when AFM joins forces with AFI Fest, which will certainly increasemarketability for our new films."
