Amy Seimetz's 'Sun Don't Shine' Acquired by Factory 25 for a Spring Release

Factory 25 has acquired worldwide rights to Amy Seimetz’s writing-directing debut “Sun Don’t Shine.” The crime drama had its world premiere at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Chicken & Egg Emergent Narrative Woman Director Award. (It was also nominated for the Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You award at the Gothams.)

The specialty distributor plans a day-and-date theatrical/digital release April 26.

“Sun Don’t Shine” follows a young woman with a disturbing past and her boyfriend on a suspenseful road trip along the Gulf Coast of central Florida. The film stars Kate Lyn Sheil, Kentucker Audley, A.J. Bowen and Kit Gwin.

Seimetz produced with Kimberly Sherman; Tim Fargo, Andrew Krucoff, Shane Carruth and Mark Reeb are executive producers.

Seimetz will appear in front of the camera this week in the Sundance 2013 films “Upstream Color” and “Pit Stop.”

Factory 25 has recently released “The Sheik and I,” “Francine,” “The Oregonian” and “The Color Wheel,” which is nominated for the John Cassavetes Award at this year’s Independent Spirits. Upcoming releases include “Better Than Something: Jay Reatard” and “The Other Side of Sleep.”
