Goalpost Film (UK) has sold Australian feature musical The Sapphires to France, Israel and Canada.
The deals, completed at the European Film Market in Berlin, follow previous sales to Portugal (where it will be distributed by Lusomundo) and Cinesky for airlines. The film will be distributed in France by Diaphana, in Israel by Lev Films and in Canada by eOne.
The Sapphires stars Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell as the all-girl singing group. Set in the heady days of 1968, the film is inspired by a true story about the singers, who hailed from a remote Australian Aboriginal mission before being discovered by an unlikely talent scout (played by TheIT Crowd actor Chris O’Dowd).
Sales are being handled by Tristan Whalley from Goalpost Film (UK), a company related to Goalpost Pictures Australia, which produced the film.
eOne’s Hopscotch will release the film in Australia later this year.
