Holding the Man.
Neil Armfield’s Holding The Man has been picked up by Netflix. The film will be available on the platform in all of the streaming service’s territories – except Australia and New Zealand.
Holding the Man is also set for theatrical release in a number of international territories, having been sold to Strand Releasing in the US, Peccadillo in the UK, Pro Fun in Germany and Switzerland and Cinemien in the Benelux.
Producer Kylie du Fresne said: “The film has captured the hearts of audiences wherever it has screened and I am absolutely delighted that people around the world will now be able to share in the experience.”
Holding the Man is based on Timothy Conigrave’s memoir by the same name, adapted for screen by Tommy Murphy. It stars Ryan Corr, Craig Stott, Anthony LaPaglia, Guy Pearce, Kerry Fox and Camilla Ah Kin.
Tristan Whalley, from UK-based Goalpost Film, repped the international sales.
