Canadian distribution/sales company Raven Banner Entertainment has acquired worldwide sales rights to the post-apocalyptic horror/thriller The Collapsed (first mentioned here on Bloody), and the cult/comedy documentary Skull World, both produced by Unstable Ground. The films will be represented at the upcoming European Film Market, and will see festival play throughout 2011.
“With the market as it stands, indie film needs people that truly get where this business is going. While meeting with them at AFM last November, the Raven Banner team, Michael Paszt and James Fler, impressed me with their somewhat revolutionary approach to sales. The decision became an easy one. I’m confident they will help the films reach the right audiences around the world.” Stated Justin McConnell, director of both films.
Michael Paszt, head of Raven Banner, added “We are thrilled to partner up with Unstable Ground on both of these projects. Justin is part of a “new breed” of genre filmmakers emerging from Canada, and a perfect match for Raven Banner!.”
THE COLLAPSED: “In the wake of the end of the world, a family of four desperately tries to survive against insurmountable odds. Their goal: escaping the city and traveling to the rural community they once called home, Dover’s Bend.
The constant threat of a violent death forcing them to stay as far away from civilization as possible, they take to the forest, soon to discover the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries.”

Greg is building the Canadian-chapter of Box Wars, an international underground movement of cardboard-based combat. The feature-length documentary SKULL WORLD follows Greg through 2 years of his often surreal and hilarious life.”
