Slamdunk Film Festivals has launched production/distribution shingle Slamdunk Films. With a private equity fund, Slamdunk will acquire finished films, option screenplays and assist filmmakers with distribution. Shingle aims to have two films in production by third-quarter 2002.

Slamdunk has optioned the screenplay “Full Fathom Five” by Geoffrey O’Brian. Set on the fishing grounds of the North Atlantic, it’s a fantasy adventure that follows two orphaned brothers and their friends as they search for the boys’ father.

Slamdunk principals Justin Henry and John Peterson also acted as producers’ reps at this year’s AFM, brokering a deal between Thomas Elliott and RGH Lions Share Pictures for the film “Asylum Days,” starring C. Thomas Howell.

Slamdunk also co-reps with A Martinez the John Henry Davis-directed “Ordinary Sinner,” winner of Slamdunk 2002’s dramatic feature and director awards.

Founded in Park City in 1997, Slamdunk began as an alternative showcase to the Sundance Film Festival. Slamdunk now hosts annual screenings and events at the Sundance, Cannes and Toronto festivals.
