SXSW Film "Gimme the Loot" has been acquired by Sundance Selects for North American and Latin American distribution, the company said Monday.
The movie won the best narrative feature Grand Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival.
"Gimme the Loot" is about Malcolm and Sofia, two graffiti artists who, to show up a rival gang, plan to tag an iconic New York landmark.
To get the $500 they need to pull off their scheme, they embark on a two-day adventure "involving black market spray cans, illicit bodegas, stolen snearkers, a high stakes heist and a beautiful, stoned girl whose necklace is literally their key to becoming the biggest writers in the city," Sundance Selects said in a statement.
Adam Leon wrote and directed the movie. Natalie Difford, Dominic Buchanan and Jamund Washington wrote. Newcomers Tashiana Washington, Ty Hickson, Meeko, Zoe Lescaze and Sam Soghor star.
