iW NEWS | Visit Gets Safdie's "Robbed" for Cannes

Unveiling its lineup for next week’s Cannes Market, Visit Films has announced its acquisition of international rights to Josh Safdie‘s “The Pleasure of Being Robbed,” which will close the Director’s Fortnight section this year. Also on Visit’s slate are Azazel Jacobs‘s Sundance hit “Momma’s Man,” Olaf De Fleur‘s Berlinale Teddy Award winner “The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela,” Stephen Higgins and Nina Gilden Seavey‘s “The Matador” from SXSW and Guy Moshe‘s “Holly.” The company recently closed a spate of deals on recent market titles, including a 4 film pact with MovieMobz in Brazil for “Arranged,” “Hannah Takes The Stairs,” “Choking Man,” and “Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of America.” It also licensed “Hannah Takes the Stairs” to ICA Films (UK), “Choking Man” to Soda (UK), and “Severed Ways” to Ascot-Elite (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
