Mance Media reveals official poster & trailer
HOLLYWOOD, CA – Monday, October 27, 2014 - Mance Media, a global film and television distribution company based at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, CA, today formally announces the acquisition of the feature film LILY & KAT starring Hannah Murray (“Skins”, “Game of Thrones”), Jessica Rothe (“The Hot Flashes”), and Jack Falahee (“Rage”, “How To Get Away With Murder”).
Mance Media has acquired North American rights to LILY& KAT and plans a 2015 day & date theatrical and VOD release.
Inseparable best friends struggle to make the best of their last few days together, savoring the city nightlife with an enigmatic artist one of them takes a liking for.
Set in New York City, the film follows a naive fashion school graduate named Lily (Jessica Rothe) who finds her world turned upside down when her reckless best friend Kat (Hannah Murray) announces she’s moving away to London in a matter of days. At a Lower East Side art opening the next night, they meet the enigmatic rising artist Henri (Jack Falahee), who Lily quickly takes a liking for. With less than seven days left and a new attractor between them, Lily and Kat will find their “unbreakable” friendship put to the test.
“It's been an interesting journey for Lily & Kat to reach completion, so I am thrilled to finally see its release with Mance Media. I feel this is a perfect pairing as both the film and Mance Media share a youthful sensibility.” – Micael Preysler, writer/director.
“Our recent acquisitions have been geared toward serving the millennial audience and Lily & Kat fits nicely into this initiative. Looking forward to working with Micael and team on its 2015 release.”– Matthew Mancinelli, CEO of Mance Media.
The deal was negotiated between Ryan Keller of Instrum International and Matthew Mancinelli for Mance Media.
Based at the historic Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, Mance Media is a global film and television distribution company. Launched by Matthew Mancinelli in early 2012, Mance Media acquires, licenses, co-produces and co-finances a wide-range of programming for the global marketplace.
