LevelK closes second round of deals for Heavy Trip

LevelK wraps up a new round of deals for the Finnish heavy metal comedy Heavy Trip that is now making its way to more than 35 countries and celebrating its Spanish premiere at Sitges Film Festival.

 

The film has recently been picked up for distribution in Taiwan (Cineplex Development), China (DDDream), Portugal (Filmin), and Spain (Twelve Oaks Pictures). Ascot Elite that previously bought the film for Germany has now picked up the film for Benelux as well.

Previously, Heavy Trip was sold to the U.S (Doppelgänger Releasing, Music Box Films) as well as PayTV for Eastern Europe (HBO central Europe).

Produced by renowned Making Movies Oy, the film follows an unknown heavy metal band in a small town in Northern Finland called Impaled Rektum, who has rehearsed for 12 years without ever playing a gig. Lead singer Turo is forced to overcome his fears and lead the band on a wild journey to the hottest metal festival in Norway.

Sales Manager at LevelK, Lauren Valmadre, said: ”We're thrilled to be working with international distributors, who share our passion for this utterly hilarious and unique film and that audiences around the world will get to experience the wacky adventures of these lovable Finnish metalheads in HEAVY TRIP.”

Heavy Trip will celebrate its Spanish premiere at Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival in the Midnight X-treme section in the beginning of October.

The film is produced by Kai Nordberg & Kaarle Aho for Making Movies Ltd with a budget of € 3,1 million, financed by Finnish Film Foundation, YLE & Film Camp. Scanbox Entertainment released the film locally on March 9th 2018.

LevelK scores sales on Danish suspense thriller Cutterhead

Danish international sales and distribution outfit LevelK has closed first round of deals on Danish suspense thriller Cutterhead that will celebrate its Asian premiere at Busan Film Festival in the Flash Forward section.

 

The film has recently been picked up for distribution by Filmin (Portugal), Jushi Films (China) and New Select (Japan).

Despite radically different world-views, they must put their lives and bodies in each other's hands to survive.

Sales Managers Lauren Valmadre and Debra Liang negotiated the deals.

Cutterhead has been selected for CPH PIX and in October the film will celebrate its Asian premiere at Busan Film Festival in the Flash Forward section.

The film is directed by first time feature director Rasmus Kloster Bro and produced by Amalie Lyngbo Quist for Beo Starling. It is written by Rasmus Kloster Bro and Mikkel Bak Sørensen, and financed by New Danish Screen and DFI. Cast includes Christine Sønderris, Samson Semere and Krešimir Mikić.

LevelK strikes five deals for Klaus Härö's 'One Last Deal'

LevelK wraps up first round of sales for Klaus Härö’s Finnish drama One Last Deal during Toronto as Japanese distributor New Select and Australian Rialto picks up the film for local distribution.

 

After celebrating its World Premiere at TIFF in the Contemporary World Cinema section, One Last Deal has caught distributor’s attention. New Select and Rialto have respectively acquired Japanese and Australian and New Zealand rights to the Finnish drama. The film has also been sold to Taiwan (Swallow Wings Films Co. Ltd), China (DDDream), Worldwide Airlines excl. Taiwan & the Nordics (Encore Inflight Limited) and Brazil (Cineart Filmes).

Lauren Valmadre, sales manager at LevelK, said: “The warm reception to Klaus Häro's beautiful film ONE LAST DEAL at TIFF from distributors, audiences and the press has been overwhelmingly positive. With already a few major territories signed and more to come shortly, we are proud to be working with such an excellent film and esteemed team.”

The Golden Globes nominated director Klaus Härö is one of Finland’s most successful filmmakers. His latest film The Fencer (2015) was nominated for the Golden Globes and shortlisted for Oscars in 2016. The Fencer was also produced by Making Movies Oy. His first feature film Elina won the Crystal Bear in Berlin 2003 and Ingmar Bergman prize in Sweden 2004.

"I am truly overwhelmed with all the positive reactions and feedback we've received at TIFF. Being at the festival and kicking off the film with great Q&As and really good reviews feels just like winning an award. It is slowly starting to sink in that we’ve made a really good film,” said the director of One Last Deal, Klaus Härö.

One Last Deal follows Olavi, an elderly art dealer on the verge of retirement, who has always put business and art before everything, even his family. At a fateful art auction, an unmarked painting catches his attention, which he believes could be worth millions. Can he pull of this one last deal and leave the art world a success?

Renowned production company Making Movies have been nominated for the Golden Globes, shortlisted for the Oscars (The Fencer by Klaus Härö, 2016) and nominated for the European Film Award (The Good Postman by Tonislav Hristov, 2017). Making Movies also co-produced The Look of Silence, the Oscar-nominated (2016) documentary film by Joshua Oppenheimer.

Screenplay is written by Anna Heinämaa and the film is financed by IPR.VC, Finnish Film Foundation, Business Finland, YLE, Nordisk Film & TV Fond, EU Creative Media, KMS (The Church Media Foundation).
