IFC has acquired all North American rights to French animated film "Fears(s) of the Dark." "Dark" is the work of six graphic artists and cartoonists, Blutch, Marie Caillou, Pierre DiSciullo, Lorenzo Mattotti, Richard McGuire and Charles Burns who stylized nightmares based on their own phobias using only black, white and gray. The film premiered at the Rome International Film Festival and also screened at Sundance and Paris Rendezvous. [Peter Knegt]
