Multiple Media Entertainment Goes 'Off World'
Canadian outfit takes North American rights to Theo Films feature from Mateo Guez.
TORONTO -- Multiple Media Entertainment has acquired the North American distribution rights to the indie Canadian feature Off World from Mateo Guez and Theo Films.
The acquisition marks the first major deal for Jennifer Graham, the former Peace Arch Television exec who recently joined newly launched Multiple Media as senior vp of sales and acquisitions.
Off World, a docu-fiction film, stars Marc Abaya and Cheryl Ranos and follows a young Toronto man whose life is changed during a return to his birthplace of Smokey Mountain in Manila.
The feature screened as part of the Perspective Canada Program last year in Cannes.
Off World was produced by Guez and Byron Kent Wong.
Indie Multiple Media was recently launched by Michael Taylor and Drew Craig, both former Peace Arch execs, with offices in Vancouver and Toronto.
