Hot Property, the UK indie comedy starring MyAnna Buring, has secured an international sales deal with Us outfit Octane Entertainment, who will be selling the title at this week’s European Film Market (Efm) in Berlin.
UK marketing company Coffee & Cigarettes brokered the deal on behalf of the producers. 101 Films has taken UK rights and released the film in the Us in December 2016.
The film marks the feature debut of Max McGill, who was Bafta-nominated along with his Hot Property producer Campbell Beaton for producing Oscar Sharp’s 2014 short The Karman Line starring Olivia Colman. McGill co-wrote the screenplay with Dawn King, Tiernan Hanby also produced.
The film is a self-dubbed “un-romantic comedy” set amid London’s property market and hipster culture. Buring stars alongside Tom Rhys Harries, Alex Ferns, Ella Smith and Kate Bracken.
