MPF&TV acquires 'Tanner Hall'
Indie film stars Amy Sedaris and will be shopped at Cannes
Moving Pictures Film and Television (MPF&TV), a wholly-owned subsidiary of financial brokerage company ICAP, has acquired indie film "Tanner Hall," a coming-of-age tale set in an all-girls boarding school in New England. This deal was brokered by Josh Braun of Submarine Pictures and attorney Craig Emanuel from Loeb & Loeb.
The pic was written and directed by Tatiana von Furstenberg, daughter of fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, and by Francesca Gregorini, daughter of Barbara Bach and step-daughter of Ringo Starr, and stars Amy Sedaris, Tom Everett Scott and Chris Kattan.
"Tanner Hall" will be released Stateside in late summer and will be shopped at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
"Going into Cannes, MPF&TV will seek out international opportunities for the film, which has so many different promotable elements," said Gary Hirsch, senior acquisitions exec for Santa Monica-based MPF&TV.
Pic was produced by Julie Snyder and executive produced by Richard Bready.
