‘Putty’ to hit U.S. this fall

Cinema Guild picks up U.S. rights to film

The Cinema Guild has picked up U.S. rights to Matt Porterfield’s drama “Putty Hill” for a fall release.

Pic — about a group of Baltimore friends and neighbors who gather on the eve of a funeral — premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, screened at SXSW and won the jury award at the Atlanta Film Fest. “With only his second feature, Matt has crafted an achingly beautiful and wholly original film that ranks with the best of recent American cinema,” said Cinema Guild’s Ryan Krivoshey.

Helmer Porterfield’s previous film was 2006’s “Hamilton.” “Putty Hill” was co-written and co-produced by Jordan Mintzer, a Variety film reviewer.

Upcoming releases from Cinema Guild, which specializes in independent and foreign pics and docus, include Jacques Rivette’s “Around a Small Mountain” and Jeff Malmberg’s “Marwencol.”
