Strand Raises Curtain to Tribeca Pic “Backstage”

Strand Raises Curtain to Tribeca Pic "Backstage"

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Emmanuelle Bercot‘s “Backstage,” which received its U.S. premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival Wednesday. The film stars Emmanuelle Seigner as a pop idol whose life is turned upside down when a young, obssessed fan, played by Islid Le Besco, invades her life when they meet on a television show taping. The deal was negotiated between Carole Baraton of Wild Bunch and Marcus Hu and Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing during the Tribeca Film Festival. “Backstage” will also be screening at the San Francisco International Film Festival, currently underway, and at the upcoming Seattle International Film Festival.
