25 October, 2010 | By Jeremy Kay

New York-based sales company Visit Films has closed a number of deals ahead of next week's AFM in Santa Monica.

At the recent London Film Festival (LFF) industry screening series, Visit Films licensed all UK rights to Eyad Zahra's Muslim punk film The Taqwacores (pictured) to Network Releasing and is close to a UK deal for LFF selection Cold Weather.

Sundance premiere The Taqwacores launched in the US on October 22 through Strand Releasing and Bac Films will open it in France in early 2011.

Visit licensed The Freebie, ahead of its international premiere in Rome as the opening night film in the Extra Section, to Delta Pictures in Italy.

Toronto premiere Small Town Murder Songs went to Israel (Lev Films) and Turkey (Irfan Films). The Myth Of The American Sleepover has been licensed to France (Metropolitan), Australia and New Zealand (Curious), Benelux (Filmfreak), Iceland (Greenlight) and television and digital rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East (IFC).

Tilva Rosh went to Romania (Transilvania) and Turkey (Irfan). The fashion documentary Picture Me was acquired for Canada (Mongrel), Australia and New Zealand (Vendetta), France (Eurozoom), Germany (Atlas), Brazil (Globosat) and Italy (Delta).

Bear Nation went to Atlantide for Italy, which also picked up Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers, as did Filmfreak for the Benelux. Queen Of Hearts was acquired by Film Sin Fronteras for Latin America and the busy Atlantide for Italy.

Finally, Visit licensed Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey, a documentary about the rock band Journey that is in post-production, to Hopscotch for Australia and New Zealand.
