IFC travels to Madden's 'Winnipeg'
TORONTO -- IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Guy Madden's "My Winnipeg." The film, which premiered last Friday at the Toronto International Film Festival, is a documentary study of the director's home town, which blends images of the city with an account of its history and re-enactments of scenes from Madden's own childhood. Madden also wrote the screenplay for the film, which was produced by Jody Shapiro and Plyllis Laing and exec produced by Michael Burns. Maximum Films handled the sale to IFC.
