Pacific Northwest Pictures
Pacific Northwest Pictures has acquired Canadian rights to Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune. The
Danish film, which premiered in competition at the Berlin Film
Festival, follows a family who set up a commune in Copenhagen. The
Vancouver-based boutique distributor will release the film theatrically
across Canada in May, starting with an exclusive engagement at the TIFF
Bell Lightbox in Toronto beginning May 19. The deal was negotiated by
PNP’s Emily Alden and TrustNordisk’s Susan Wendt.
