Stephen Fingleton’s dystopian thriller ‘The Survivalist’ has been acquired by Alchemy for North American distribution.

Fingleton’s debut feature had its’ world premiere at Tribeca earlier this year and received positive reviews from publications such as Screen International and The Hollywood Reporter. It also premiered at the Belfast Film Festival last month and will now be distributed in North America, according to Deadline.

‘The Survivalist’ is the near future story of a man (Martin McCann) eking out a meagre existence on a secluded smallholding deep in the forest. When a starving woman (Olwen Fouéré) and her teenage daughter (Mia Goth) discover his farm, his loneliness drives him to strike a bargain with them in return for bed and board. But as desire becomes stronger than necessity, the exchange becomes an uneasy, ongoing arrangement which threatens not only his carefully constructed world but also his life.

The film was developed with the support of the BFI Film Fund and Northern Ireland Screen’s New Talent Focus Scheme and the screenplay was previously featured on the Hollywood Blacklist and topped the UK Brit List. It’s produced by Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones, and David Gilbery, with financing by The Fyzz Facility, alongside Northern Ireland Screen, the BFI and Goldcrest.
