Picture This Gets Award-Winning "A Love To Hide"

By Indiewire | Indiewire July 21, 2006 at 7:49AM

Picture This! Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the Outfest 2006 award winner, "A Love To Hide" (Un Amour A Taire). Christian Faure's film, described by the company as a "heart-wrenching gay drama set during the Nazi occupation of France in 1942," will be releases in the U.S. and Canada in November. The film shared the audience award for best feature and also won the jury and audience prizes at the 2006 Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, among numerous other fest awards. The deal was negotiated by Douglas Witkins, President of Picture This! Entertainment, and Dimitri Stephanides of TF1 International. "This picture depicts an important yet terrifying period in the history of gay people and all others who suffered under hatred and intolerance," Witkins said in a statement. "It should be a permanent and prominent component of everyone’s film collection, so as we celebrate our personal freedoms we never forget the not-to-distant past." [Eugene Hernandez]
