Visit Films at AFM




We will be attending AFM this year with our own booth in Room 526 of the Loews Hotel. We will be bringing our current slate, as well as two new titles, Snakehead and Always Shine.

Screen Daily reports:

EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Kampe and his team have acquired rights to a pair of titles and will commence sales at AFM this week.

Crime thriller Snakehead stars Lucy Liu as a smuggled immigrant who becomes a human smuggler herself only to be targetted by rivals and the FBI.

Evan Jackson Leong directs his passion project from his own screenplay and most recently directed the documentary Linsanity.

Brian Yang of 408 Films produces with Gregory Chou and E Brian Dobbins and Allen Fischer of Principato-Young Entertainment. The latter two are currently in production on Sea Of Trees, while Chou is producing the Halle Berry thriller Kidnap.

Jason Weinberg of Untitled Entertainment and Maryellen Mulcachy of Framework Entertainment also serve as producers.

Always Shine is currently in production from director Sophia Takal and stars Caitlin FitzGerald, Mackenzie Davis and Jane Adams.

The psychological thriller follows two struggling LA actresses who embark on a road trip to Big Sur to mend their damaged friendship.

Takal's first film, Green, debuted at SXSW in 2011 and won the SXSW Chicken & Egg Emergent Narrative Woman Director award and earned a Gotham Award nomination.

'We are constantly evolving our slate to meet the needs of the market and our own internal tastes,' said Visit Films president Kampe.

'Both of these films are from directors with unique visions and stories to tell and follow on the successful year that we have had with It Follows, Charlie's Country and 10.000 KM.'

Davis and Takal are represented by UTA. Davis is managed by Thruline. Takal is managed by Brillstein. FitzGerald is handled by ICM and Authentic.
