IFC Nabs Animated Sundance Pic ‘Fear(s) of the Dark’

IFC has acquired the North American rights to the French animated film Fear(s) of the Dark, which failed to impress us at this year’s Sundance Film Festival (review). Directed by Blutch (Christian Hincker), Marie Caillou, Pierre DiSciullo, Lorenzo Mattotti, Richard McGuire and Charles Burns, the black-and-white film presents the stylized interpretations of nightmares from six graphic artists and cartoonists. “Dark,” which currently has no release date, premiered at the Rome film festival and later screened at Sundance.
