IFC Midnight in ‘Penumbra’

Film acquired ahead of premiere

IFC Midnight snapped up rights in North America, Malaysia and Singapore to Adrian and Ramiro Garcia Bogliano’s thriller “Penumbra” on the heels of the pic’s world preem Thursday at Austin’s Fantastic Fest.

Argentina-set tale centers on a woman who, on the day of a solar eclipse, notices strange happenings that may or may not have something to do with the apartment she’s trying to rent out in a run-down building. Cristina Brondo, Camila Bordonaba and Berta Muniz star in the pic, which was written and helmed by the Garcia Bogliano brothers (“Cold Sweat”). Horacio and Esteban Mentasti and Alberto Trigo exec produce.

Distribution pact was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman of Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films.

Exact release strategy for “Penumbra” hasn’t been announced. IFC Midnight, the genre division related to IFC Films and Sundance Selects, releases films both theatrically and on VOD.

“Penumbra” joins an IFC Midnight slate that also includes “The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)” and “Snowtown.”
