Deal is second venture between companies

HONG KONG — Fortissimo Films has licensed Australian black comedy “Suburban Mayhem” to Blighty’s Contender Entertainment.

Film preemed out of competition in the official selection at Cannes last month.

Deal is the second between the companies after “Seven Swords” last year. It’s also the first time Contender has acquired rights to a non-Asian movie.
