‘Sleepover’ heads to IFC Films

Pic played at SXSW and Cannes

IFC Films has picked up North American and some international rights to “The Myth of the American Sleepover,” David Robert Mitchell’s teen tale that has played SXSW and Cannes.

IFC, which acquired rights to the pic in regions including east-central Europe and the Middle East, aims to release the film next year.

Storyline follows four teens on the last night of summer. Cast is made up largely of newcomers.

Pact for the North American rights was negotiated by IFC’s Jeff Deutchman with attorney George Rush, while Deutchman working with Visit Films’ Ryan Kampe on international deals.

Produced by Adele Romanski, “Myth,” already seen at Deauville and Munich, is also on tap for the Chicago Intl. Film Fest and AFI Fest later this year. IFC release will include theatrical, VOD and home video.
