Crowd funded Australian horror thriller "The Tunnel" (www.thetunnelmovie.net), is heading to Cannes to be amongst the red carpet and the cream of world cinema. There is nothing stopping co-producers/writers Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey with the film now opening for sales at the Cannes Marché du Film held during the Cannes International Film Festival (11 – 22 May 2011).
The film market perfectly coincides with the online bit torrent launch on May 19 giving an opportunity for interested international distributors and sales agents to have a sneak preview and become involved with what is becoming one of the hottest Australian films of 2011.
Those who still doubt there is a market for official torrent released films can look at the Australian deals alone with Transmission Films already onboard for DVD sales and the film having its world TV premiere on Showtime Premiere, May 18 at 10.35pm.

About The Tunnel:
“The Tunnel” has attracted worldwide attention for its unconventional crowd-funding and release model. Producers Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey raised the film’s budget of $135,000 by selling each frame for $1 and opting to release the film via controversial internet piracy networks.
Following a news film crew’s journey into the city’s mysterious tunnels hunting for a story, “The Tunnel” sees the story turn on this investigative team made up of news producer Peter Ferguson (Andy Rodoreda), TV journalist, Natasha Warner (Bel Delia) TV crew cameraman, Steve Miller (Steve Davis) and sound recordist, Jim ‘Tangles’ Williams (Luke Arnold). The film also stars Goran Kleut, Ben Maclaine and James Caitlin.
