Helmed by Judith Krant and co-written by Krant and Dan Sumpter, “Made in China” scored the grand jury prize in the 2009 narrative competish at SXSW. Pic follows an inventor who heads to Shanghai in an effort to find a manufacturer for the household product he’s thought up.

“Sorry, Thanks,” directed by Dia Sokol and penned by Sokol and Lauren Veloski, follows the comedic aftermath of a one-night stand.

Deal for “Made in China” was struck by Jeff Deutchman for IFC and Orly Ravid of the Film Collaborative, while the “Sorry, Thanks” pact was negotiated by Deutchman and Ryan Kampe of Visit Films.
