The hope of every filmmaker who submits their film to Sundance dreams of getting it picked up by a major motion picture studio by the time the festival is over. These 3 masterfully made movies have all been sold to the highest bidder:
- The Birth of a Nation hit a new record when the film was picked up and signed a distribution deal with Fox Searchlight on Tuesday for $17.4 million according to Variety.
- Equity really came out with a bang at Sundance. Sony Classics picked up this female-led drama about women and their rising roles on Wall Street.
- Morris From America premiered at Sundance and A24 dished out 7 figures in order to secure distribution rights to this incredible comedic yet warm film about an African- American dad and his 13 year old son, who struggle to survive in a predominately white neighborhood in Germany.
