UK-based sales firm 101 Films International, a member of the Amcomri Media Group, has boarded world sales on BUFF Originals’ drama Finding Forever which the company is launching at the virtual American Film Market .
Casting is already underway on the feature, which will be written and directed by Clare Anyiam-Osigwe (No Shade), and produced by Jesse Quinones (Calloused Hands, Cagefighter) for Woolfcub Productions, Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe for BUFF Originals, Finding Forever Ltd and Ajaib Singh Kalsi.
Anyiam-Osigwe and Quinones previously collaborated on 2018 drama No Shade and have already finalised agreements with Eoghan Burke, VP of Sales at 101 Films International to manage world sales for Finding Forever.
Set in a London Gospel Church, the film follows three best friends, two of whom are in long term relationships. Though their relationships are far from perfect, together the two friends take comfort in encouraging their bachelor best mate to swap the single life for the married life. His situation appears complete until pressures at work and the expectations of his fiancée tip him over the edge - leaving his business, his marriage and his friendships all on the brink.
Clare Anyiam-Osigwe is represented by Revolution Talent. Jesse Quinones is represented by Revolution Talent in the UK and Gersh in the U.S. Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe stepped down as director of the multi-accredited British Urban Film Festival last month.
Helena Mackenzie, Head of Inward Investment & Business Development at Film London, said "We're delighted Jesse and the team have secured international distribution via 101 Films International for Finding Forever which received a really positive response at our Production Finance Market. Over the last 15 years the PFM has unlocked access to all kinds of production finance including sales and distribution. Deals like this further cement the importance and relevance this event has with independent feature film producers."
Eoghan Burke, VP of International Sales, 101 Films International added, “We are very pleased to be on board and to be working with Clare and Jess. This feature has such a universal and relatable storyline that we are sure it will have strong appeal in multiple territories.”
