The Toronto Film Festival has turned out to be a success where some of the best films have been showcased for many to see. However, the true success of such film festivals is how some presentations go on to find distributors or streamers that go on to give the film a wide release.
A similar thing has happened with dystopian drama thriller, The Platform. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has acquired world rights, except for select Asian territories, to the Spanish-language sci-fi thriller The Platform, which had a world bow in the Midnight Madness section at the Toronto International Film Festival.
"We are extremely happy that this deal with Netflix, thanks to the collaboration of CAA and XYZ, will make the film get the attention it deserves,” Latido Films said Tuesday in a statement.
The Platform was produced by Carlos Juárez and co-producers David Matamoros and M. Angeles Hernandez, in association with Basque Films, Mr. Miyagi Films and Plataforma la Película AIE.
Raquel Perea and Carlos Juárez were executive producers. The deal was brokered by Latido Films, Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films, and CAA Media Finance of behalf of the filmmakers.
