MPF&TV acquires 'Tanner Hall'
Indie film stars Amy Sedaris and will be shopped at CannesMoving 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.
"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.
