Documentary will premiere at L.A. Film Fest

New York-based Gigantic Releasing has acquired all North American and English-speaking territory rights to Morgan Dews' documentary "Must Read After My Death," which will have its U.S. premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Friday.

The film, which spans 10 years in the lives of a Hartford couple and their four children, will be released theatrically this year.

The deal was announced jointly by Gigantic NYC CEO Brian Devine, and Mark Lipsky, president of Gigantic Releasing, the company's new film distribution arm.

The film is produced by Alison Palmer Bourke, formerly vp documentaries and features at IFC. The deal was negotiated by attorney Jonathan Gray for Gigantic and attorney Lisa Callif for the filmmakers.
