Factory 25 snags ‘Sun Don’t Shine’

Seimetz's film to be released day-and-date in April

Brooklyn-based distributor Factory 25 has picked up world rights to “Sun Don’t Shine,” the SXSW alum penned and directd by Amy Seimetz.

Seimetz is turning into something of an indie-film fixture, having co-starred in “Tiny Furniture” and in upcoming Sundance 2013 preems “Upstream Color” and “Pit Stop.” “Sun Don’t Shine” bowed at SXSW in March 2012 and has gone on to play the fest circuit.

Storyline of “Sun” centers on a couple, played by Kate Lyn Sheil and Kentucker Audley, on a mysteriously tense road trip through Florida. Kimberly Sherman and Seimetz produce along with exec producers Tim Fargo, Andrew Krucoff, Shane Carruth and Mark Reeb.

Factory 25 aims to launch a theatrical run of the film April 26 with day-and-date release on VOD and other digital platforms. DVD is planned for late summer.

Just ahead of this year’s edition of Sundance, Factory 25 also recently picked up world rights to Hot Docs alum “A Rubberband is an Unlikely Instrument,” set for a Gotham theatrical run Feb. 8 and a subsequent cross-platform release.
