Visit Films finalizes deal with IFC for ‘Sorry Thanks’

IFC Films today announced the acquisition of two popular female-helmed titles from last year’s SXSW Film Festival, Judith Krant’s ‘Made in China’ and Dia Sokol’s ‘Sorry, Thanks.’ The fish-out-of-water comedy ‘China’ won SXSW’s Grand Jury Prize as well as the Chicken & Egg Award for Emerging Female Director. Relationship comedy ‘Sorry’ is Sokol’s feature directorial debut, after producing the acclaimed ‘Beeswax’ and ‘Nights and Weekends.’ Both films will be released on VOD in June. IFC’s Jeff Deutchman brokered both deals – with the Film Collaborative’s Orly Ravid for ‘China’ deal, and with Visit Films’ Ryan Kampe for ‘Sorry.’ [Basil Tsiokos]
