Director Kerem Sanga's film The Young Kieslowski, winner of the audience award for best narrative feature at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival, has sold to Mance Media, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Mance is planning a theatrical and VOD release for the first half of 2015. It will shop the film to international distributors at November's American Film Market.

"Mance Media's enthusiasm for Kieslowski has been palpable since the day we premiered at LAFF," said Sanga, who also wrote the film. "I'm very proud of this film, and I couldn't be more excited to be working with them in bringing it to the world."

The comedy tells the story of two awkward virgins who drunkenly hook up and learn that they're about to become the parents of twins. Ryan Malgarini (Freaky Friday), Haley Lu Richardson (Ravenswood) and Joshua Malina (Scandal) star.

In his review, THR film critic Justin Lowe praised the "nimble dialogue and plotting" and said the film's two leads "demonstrate a winning rapport."

Chris Colbert and Ben Ross are executive producers. Seth Caplan, Danny Leiner, Ross Putman and David Hunter are producers.
