Including THE LAST RIGHT, 14 DAYS 12 NIGHTS and MAFIA INC.
Montréal – February 5, 2019 – Entertainment One’s boutique sales arm Seville International is set to bring a diverse slate of feature films to the 2019 European Film Market in Berlin. Three new films – THE LAST RIGHT, 14 DAYS 12 NIGHTS and MAFIA INC. – will be introduced for sale at this market.
“We are so proud of the films we’re bringing to EFM this year. These films explore the bonds of family, yet each tells their story through vastly different lenses. Whether through laughter or grief, our filmmakers touch upon universal truths; we can’t wait to share them with audiences worldwide,” said Anick Poirier, SVP of Sales, Seville International.
These three titles join ADVANTAGES OF TRAVELLING BY TRAIN and BELOW, which were previously announced at the American Film Market and are now in production.
