Prorom is proud to announce that it has acquired the distribution rights for the Official Competition in the following territories: Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Following the presentation of exclusive footage at the European Film Market last week, highly anticipated title Official Competition – reuniting Spanish stars Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz – has seized sales to major distributors for sales agency Protagonist Pictures and producer The Mediapro Studio.
Official Competition is a comedy about the fierce rivalry between two actors with massive talent but even bigger egos.
The film is directed by Argentinian duo Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat, whose credits include 2016 black comedy The Distinguished Citizen, which played in Venice Film Festival Official Competition.
George Hamilton, head of sales at Protagonist, said: “Official Competition has landed with amazing distribution partners all around the world and they are all just as excited as we are for the film’s launch later this year!”.
Axel Böhm, COO and Head of Acquisition, Sales & Marketing at Prorom said: „We are delighted to bring Official Competition to our audience in Central & Eastern Europe this year, and together with them we can’t wait to see the sparks fly between Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas on the screen!”.
Prorom will release Official Competition in cinemas soon.
