Irish Co-Production ‘The Summit’ Strikes US Distribution Deal At Sundance
21 Jan 2013 : By Eva Hall
'The Summit' will be released in the US
Irish documentary ‘The Summit’ has been acquired by Sundance Selects, following its success at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.

Sundance Selects, a subsidiary of IFC, which in turn is owned by AMC, the network behind ‘Mad Men’, ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’, bought the US distribution rights over the weekend.

The documentary, which attempts to uncover what happened to 11 of the 22 climbers who vanished within 48 hours in their attempt to reach the top of K2 in 2008, first screened at Sundance on Friday, January 18, followed by Saturday and Sunday screenings.

Ahead of its Sundance premiere, the film received positive reviews from US critics, with Indie Wire, Filmmaker Magazine and Screen Daily flagging the Irish co-production as one-to-watch ahead of the festival.

Nick Ryan produced and directed the film, which was a co-production between Image Now Films and Pat Falvey Productions, in association with Passion Pictures, Diamond Docs and Fantastic Films.

The documentary was funded by the Irish Film Board, RTÉ, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and the BBC.

Irish short film ‘Irish Folk Furniture’ also screened at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend, having been officially selected for competition from over 9,000 international submissions.
