CANADIAN RIGHTS TO SETH A. SMITH’S TIN CAN ACQUIRED BY INDIE DISTRIBUTOR LEVELFILM
Toronto. August 19, 2021. Following its world premiere at this year's Fantasia International Film Festival, levelFILM has acquired Canadian rights to Seth A. Smith’s film TIN CAN. The film is Smith’s follow up to the critically acclaimed THE CRESCENT.
Starring Anna Hopkins, Simon Mutabazi and Michael Ironside, TIN CAN is a dark sci-fi thriller that takes the single-location prison movie format to a visceral new dimension. At a glance, it could be compared to other man-in-a-coffin type films—stories fuelled by primal, claustrophobic fear. But in TIN CAN, what lies outside confinement is much more unsettling.
“TIN CAN is the bold and compelling brainchild of visionary filmmaker Seth A. Smith and we’re excited to bring it to Canadian audiences,” said David Hudakoc, Managing Director of levelFILM.
The deal was negotiated by Michael Baker, Executive Vice President at levelFILM and TIN CAN producer Nancy Urich. It will receive a theatrical release in early 2022.
