Cannes: Film Movement Nabs U.S. Rights to ‘Belle and Sebastian’ (EXCLUSIVE)

New York-based Film Movement has acquired all U.S. rights to WWII-set adventure tale “Belle and Sebastian,” the bigscreen adaptation of the classic French novel about the friendship between a young boy and his dog.

The acquisition of “Belle and Sebastian” illustrates Film Movement’s aim to broaden its distribution slate with indie family entertainment movies.

Pic has proven a hit in France, grossing over $23 million, and also scored more than $10 million in Italy.

Film Movement recently launched a genre label, RAM Releasing, and tapped former Entertainment One U.S. prexy Michael Rosenberg as co-president in March.
Deal was negotiated by Film Movement’s co-president Adley Gartenstein and Yohann Comte, Gaumont’s deputy head of sales.
