Company gets North American rights to Richard Rowley's documentary
Jonathan Sehring, prexy of Sundance Selects/IFC Films. “We made this film to uncover the hidden truth about wars being fought in our name that we as Americans know next to nothing about, and we can’t think of a better partner to do this with than Sundance Selects,” added Scahill. “Dirty Wars” was made possible by generous support from Bertha / BRITDOC, The Bertha Foundation, Kindle Project Fund of the Common Counsel Foundation, Sundance Institute Documentary Fund, Vital Projects Fund, and Wallace Global Fund. The “Dirty Wars” deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, Jeff Deutchman and Betsy Rodgers for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, while Josh Braun at Submarine negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers. A sister label to IFC Films and IFC Midnight that is owned and operated by AMC Networks, Sundance Selects acquired North American rights to Nick Ryan’s Sundance documentary “The Summit” on Saturday.
