Scare Campaign sells to Metrodome in UK and other territories
Scare Campaign has secured international sales, including a deal with Metrodome Distribution in the UK.
The film, directed by Colin and Cameron Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres) and produced by Julie Ryan (Red Dog), has sold to the UK, Latin America, the Middle East, Turkey, Greece and Indonesia.
“We are thrilled that the fantastic traction Scare Campaign has gained through positive media reviews, sold out screenings and social media, has translated into an international appetite for the film”, Ryan said.
The producer and directors have been doing roadshow screenings, taking the film around the country.
“The conventional wisdom is that younger Australians aren't interested in seeing local films on the big screen, but our experience with these event screenings would suggest otherwise", Colin Cairnes said.
"It has been heartening to see a predominantly young audience come to these events and clearly get a kick out of the film's many twists and turns".
The film will have an Australian home entertainment release through Madman Entertainment in July, and will screen at the Bilbao Fantasy Film Festival in May.
Cameron Cairnes said that “Spain is home to a large and very passionate horror film scene, and I can’t wait to experience that first hand. Added to which I hear the Basque Country tapas is to die for".
Scare Campaign stars Olivia DeJonge (The Visit, Hiding), Meegan Warner (Turn, The Veil), Ian Meadows (The Moodys, The Pacific) and Josh Quong Tart (Underbelly).
Also featured are Cassandra McGrath (Wolf Creek), John Brumpton (The Loved Ones), Patrick Harvey (Utopia), Steve Mouzakis (The Suicide Theory), Jason Geary (Oddball) and Sigrid Thornton (Sea Change).
