The indie, which screened as part of the Midnight Madness sidebar at TIFF and is headed this weekend to Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, has a 2019 release in the works from the sister label to IFC Films and Sundance Selects.
The Wind, an oater with a horror spin, stars Caitlin Gerard, Julia Goldani Telles and Ashley Zuckerman. It follows a woman who moves with her husband to the American frontier, where an evil presence manifests and infects her with paranoia.
Soapbox Films and Divide/Conquer produced The Wind. “Emma Tammi’s impressive debut into narrative filmmaking starring a breakout performance from Caitlin Gerard packs the kind of fierce ingenuity we are continually searching for when we distribute films,” Lisa Schwartz and Jonathan Sehring, co-presidents of IFC Films/Sundance Selects, said in a statement.
The deal for The Wind was negotiated by IFC Midnight, with ICM Partners and XYZ Films acting on behalf of the filmmakers.
