Fortissimo Films has acquired global sales rights to Larry Yang’s "Mountain Cry." The film, which won the prize for Best Commercial Potential at last year’s Beijing International Film Festival "Pitch & Catch" event, was just announced yesterday to have its world premiere as the Closing Film of the 20th Busan International Film Festival.
"We, Larry, and our entire team are thrilled and gratified to be working with Fortissimo Films on the global promotion and sales of ‘Mountain Cry,’" said producers Ellen Eliasoph and Victoria Hon. "Their enthusiasm and consummate professionalism will ensure that our film finds its broadest possible audience and is seen – and ‘heard’ — around the world."
Pre-sales for the film will begin at the upcoming Venice International Film Festival, where Fortissimo will present teaser artwork and a promo reel. In addition to Busan, the film will be screened at the upcoming American Film Market.
