SAN SEBASTIAN — Spanish sales outfit Imagina International Sales announced Wednesday it has sold various territories on three of its titles, including Toronto entry “25 Carats.”
The two others are Daniel Sanchez Arevalo’s “Gordos” and Isabel Coixet’s “Map of the Sounds of Tokyo.”
Arsenal Filmverleih picked up “Gordos” for Germany and Austria, while Archibald took Italian rights. Produced by Tesela, Filmanova and TVE and presented in Venice Days, “Gordos” has earned more than €950,000 ($1.4 million) at the Spanish boxoffice in its first two weeks.
“Map” will be seen in German-speaking territories via Alamode, with LeopArt taking Russian rights and Monolith picking up Poland. Imagina said it is in talks on a handful of other territories.
Kino Swiat bought Polish rights on “25 Carats,” with advanced talks underway for U.S. distribution and remake rights.
Both “Gordos” and “Map” were shortlisted by Spain’s Film Academy last week as possible contenders for the country’s bid for a foreign language Oscar. The academy will announce its decision Sept. 29.
