Dogwoof acquires Sarah Gavron’s Village at the End of the World ahead of LFF premiere – movieScope
The co-production between British production company Met Films and the Danish Film Institute follows the inhabitants of one of the remotest and isolated community in the world, in the town of Niaqornat in northern Greenland.
Oli Harbottle and Vesna Cudic of Dogwoof and Dogwoof Global negotiated the deal with Met Film, whom own the rights to the film. It will be the second collaboration between the two companies after the April release of Jerry Rothwell’s Town of Runners.
Producer Al Morrow said: “We are thrilled to be working with Dogwoof again. They really understand the feature documentary market and how to reach the widest possible audience through both their UK distribution arm and their international sales team. They have a fresh and innovative approach to getting films out into the world that combines well with the films that we make.”
Harbottle said: “It is an honour to add Sarah to the list of Dogwoof directors, as she is acknowledged across the UK industry as one of the country’s finest filmmakers – we look forward to collaborating with her on the release.”
