Film Collaborative sells Outfest titles

Domestic and international sales announced for 'August,' 'Weekend'

Non-profit sales company the Film Collaborative has announced a series of domestic and international sales for Eldar Rappaport’s “August” and Andrew Haigh’s “Weekend,” both of which screened at Outfest.

Wolfe Releasing has closed a deal for all North American rights to “August,” which concerns a gay love triangle set in Los Angeles. Film Collaborative is also currently closing territory deals in the U.K., Germany, France, Brazil and Poland. Rappaport makes his feature directing debut with the pic, which premiered at the Seattle Film Fest in June.

TFC’s Orly Ravid and Wolfe prexy Maria Lynn negotiated the deal for “August.”

“‘August’ brings new sizzle to the love triangle canon, and gets real about gay relationships,” said Lynn. “We are proud to add the film to our 2011 slate of top LGBT films.”

As for “Weekend,” TFC is currently closing deals in Germany, France and Poland. Pic, which TFC sold to IFC’s Sundance Selects back in March, chronicles a weekend-long affair between two young men in Northern England. “Weekend” had its world premiere earlier this year at SXSW.

TFC is also handling sales for Outfest titles “Leave It On the Floor,” “The Wise Kids,” “Vacation!” and “We Were Here,” the latter of which is being handled in partnership with the producer’s rep Jonathan Dana.

Film sales company TFC, which works strictly on commission, has provided services to more than 100 pic in its first 18 months.
