Toronto: IFC Midnight Snags Rights to 'The Station'
The creature feature made its debut Friday during Midnight Madness.
IFC Midnight has picked up U.S. rights to The Station, the Austrian creature feature that made its debut Friday at Toronto’s Midnight Madness program.
Directed by Marvin Kren, Station centers on scientists at climate outpost in the Alps who discover that a retreating glacier is leaking a red liquid that is mutating the local wildlife. As IFC describes the story, "it will be up to reclusive technician Janek (Gerhard Liebmann) to defend the group from the biological monstrosities."
The movie stars Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler and Peter Knaack and was produced by Helmut Grasser.
The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior vp acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with Sebastien Chesneau of Rezo representing the filmmakers.
IFC Midnight is a sister label to IFC Films and Sundance Selects.
