AFM: LevelK Embarks Into ‘Encounters’

PARIS– LevelK has acquired international sales rights to Scandi horror/sci fi pic “Encounters,” Anders Bukh’s feature debut, in the run-up to the AFM.

Pic marks a departure from Denmark’s strong tradition for making crime thrillers and social realism, per Bukh. “I wanted to prove that we are also capable in these genres, by making an entertaining and suspenseful sci-fi and horror movie,” added the director.

“Encounters” follows a group of four young filmmakers who travel into the Swedish woods to shoot a low-budget horror movie. The shooting unravels when they get lost and one of the actors disappears only to return hours later, naked and in a catatonic state.

Encounters will roll-out on VOD simultaneously with its premiere at the Danish horror festival Bloody Weekend.

LevelK will also be selling Tonje Hessen Schei’s controversial docu “Drone” at the AFM.  The doc is set to play at the upcoming IDFA and CPH:DOX festivals and has been nominated for a Prix-Europa prize.

Also on LevelK’s AFM slate: Anders Thomas Jensen’s black comedy “Men and Chicken” (pictured above) with Mads Mikkelsen and David Dencik, and  Ben Chessell’s debut feature “Sucker.”
