Toronto: IFC Acquires ‘Almost Human’

Horror-thriller premiered at Toronto

IFC  has bought North American rights to Joe Begos’ “Almost Human” following its world premiere in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival.

The film, written and directed by Begos, stars Graham Skipper, Vanessa Leigh and Josh Ethier and was produced by Begos and Ethier of Channel 83 Films and Anthony Ambrosino of Ambrosino/Delmenico Films.

Almost Human,” which will also play at this year’s Fantastic Fest and Sitges Film Festival, is set in a quiet rural town in Maine beset by  axe murders and alien abduction.

The production was a collaboration between Begos and his longtime best friend Ethier. Begos was the director, writer, producer and cinematographer; Ethier was a producer, editor, sound designer and a lead actor.

“Almost Human” was the second Midnight Madness title acquired by IFC, which also bought “The Station” last week. The company also closed a distribution deal this week for Kristen Wiig’s “Hateship Loveship,” which premiered at the festival.

The deal for “Almost Human” was negotiated by Arianna Bocco and Sean Berney for IFC Films with ICM Partners and Caliber Media on behalf of the filmmakers. WTF Films is handling international rights.

Begos and Ethier are both represented by Paradigm. Begos is also represented by Caliber Media and attorney Wayne Alexander.
