Was this a good year for acquisitions at Sundance?
Sundance is one of the biggest and best indie film festivals for several reasons, but one of the most exciting reasons is the opportunity to have your film acquired. After two years of virtual screenings and big-ticket deals over Zoom calls, big Hollywood studios, A24 executives, and streaming services are back at the festival and fighting for the rights to the most compelling films at Sundance.
We asked earlier in our Sundance 2023 coverage if the film festival could save the indie film industry, and if there would be any huge acquisitions like we saw with Palm Springs and CODA, which went on to be an Oscar movie for Apple. We quickly got an answer after Netflix acquired Chloe Domont’s Fair Play, a thriller set in the ruthless finance world starring Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor and Alden Ehrenreich, for $20 million.
