Berlin: ‘Watermark’ Set for Key Distribution Deals

Berlin Film Festival Berlinale

Water documentary “Watermark,” directed by Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky, has been sold to major territories ahead of its screening at the Berlin Film Festival.

Sales by eOne Films International include eOne for the U.S., Madman for Australia, Cineart for  Benelux, Senator for German speaking Europe, Soda Pictures for the U.K. and Pictureworks for India.
