AFM: Sniper Drama ‘Downrange’ Scores European Sales

MPI Media Group has closed European sales on the Ryuhei Kitamura sniper drama “Downrange” at the American Film Market.

Deals have concluded with Wild Side for France, Splendid for Germany and Benelux, Pictureworks for India, Koch for Italy, Phoenicia for Mideast, Njuta for Scandinavia, and A Contracorriente for Spain.

Produced by Genco, the film follows a group of road-tripping college students whose van breaks down along a remote stretch of highway as they fall into the crosshairs of an enigmatic sniper. Japanese helmer Kitamura is best known for directing “The Midnight Meat Train.”

The company said, “This thoroughly 21st century nightmare, featuring rawly effective performances, drags the audience into the unknowably thrilling and excruciatingly tense drama unfolding before them which is sure to be a standout at this year’s Midnight Madness.”

Nicola Goelzhaeuser, MPI’s VP of international sales, said, “AFM has once again proven to be an important and vital market for independent films. We are thrilled to have found so many great partners who will continue to bring these films to audiences around the world.”

MPI Media Group’s subsidiaries include Dark Sky Films, MPI Home Entertainment, and the WPA Film Library. The company conducts global film sales via MPI International.
