iW NEWS | Cinema Guild Takes "24 City"

The Cinema Guild announced today at the Toronto International Film Festival the acquisition of U.S. distribution rights to Jia Zhangke‘s “24 City,” which documents the conversion of an old munitions factory into a sprawling complex of luxury high-rise apartments. The deal was negotiated by Ryan Krivoshey, Director of Distribution for The Cinema Guild with Matthieu Giblin of MK2. “24 City” will receive its North American premiere on Sunday, September 7, 2008 in Toronto and will screen later this month as part of the New York Film Festival. It will open theatrically in early 2009. [Peter Knegt]
