iW NEWS | Visit Films Licenses Five To Australia

By Indiewire | Indiewire September 7, 2008 at 6:39AM

Visit Films has concluded a number of deals in the opening days of the Toronto International Film Festival. Beyond Entertainment in Australia has licensed five titles including "Hannah Takes The Stairs," "LOL," and "Kissing on The Mouth" from director Joe Swanberg and "Dance Party USA" and "Quiet City" from director Aaron Katz. "With deals like this, it is clear that the themes of these films resonate with an international audience and that the filmmakers are beginning to break through en masse," said Visit Films partner Ryan Kampe in a statement. "Joe and Aaron along with the Duplass brothers are some of the pioneers and most creative filmmakers in the current age of digital filmmaking." The deal was negotiated between Kampe and Simone Ubaldi of Beyond. [Peter Knegt]
