Following a deal struck at Cannes, Graham Cantwell’s romantic comedy ‘The Callback Queen’ has been picked up for global sales rights across all media by US Sales Agent Princ Films.

Speaking about the deal, Igor Princ, president of Princ Film said: “From the first look we felt that this clever, funny and engaging film will perfectly fit into our slate of films for next season. We are confident that ‘The Callback Queen’ will see warm welcome among film buyers and distributors we work with globally. At the same we are delighted that we can work with Stephen and Graham not only on this film but, hopefully, future projects they have in development.”

The film’s Executive Producer Stephen Gibson said: “When Igor and I met at Cannes I knew we had found the perfect partner to help implement our distribution strategy. Princ Films have a sterling track record and vast experience in the independent sector.”

The romantic comedy which stars Amy-Joyce Hastings ('The Tudors') and Mark Killeen ('300: Rise of an Empire') will soon enjoy a select UK theatrical release. A number of Northern Ireland cinemas are confirmed, with dates and screens to be announced soon. The film has also just sealed a UK and Ireland VOD and TV distribution deal with The Movie Partnership, Europe's premium aggregator, based in the UK.

‘The Callback Queen’ is about an Irish actress in the cut-throat London film industry, striving to land a role in an epic fantasy film, directed by famous movie director Vincent Catalano. The film also stars Eoin Macken, Ger Ryan and Seán T. Ó Meallaigh.

The film is written and directed by Graham Cantwell whose previous works include debut short film ‘A Dublin Story’ which was shortlisted for an Oscar nomination in 2004, as well as political thriller ‘Anton’ which received three IFTA nominations in 2009. Joseph Conlan composed the score while Anthony Bowes served as DoP. Executive Producers on the film were Stephen Gibson, Martin Carroll and Martin Witts.

The independent film had its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh and its London Premiere at Leicester Square Theatre, before going on to screen as part of the British and Irish Film Season in Luxembourg, selling out two screens at the Irish Film Festa in Rome, and a week-long test run at ‘Game of Thrones’ creator George R. R. Martin's Jean Cocteau Cinema in New Mexico.
