Company nabs worldwide rights to comedy-drama

TLA Releasing has acquired worldwide rights for director/writer Terracino’s comedy-drama “Elliot Loves.”

TLA made the announcement Wednesday at Cannes. The film is produced by Terracino and Elizabeth Gardner with Juan Caceres and Marisa Viola co-producing.

“Elliot Loves” follows the adventures of a Dominican-American at two stages: as a nine year-old who is best friend to his single, barely-keeping-it-together mom, and as a 21 year-old looking for love in New York City.

“After we debuted at Miami and won the Audience Award, I was surprised by all the distribution offers we received,” Teracino said. “However, TLA Releasing was so passionate and enthusiastic about Elliot Loves, and incredibly eager to bring the film to gay and Latino audiences. I knew TLA Releasing was our true home.”
