IFC Midnight snags supernatural horror western The Wind

IFC Midnight announced today it is acquiring U.S. distribution rights to Emma Tammi’s THE WIND. The film made its World Premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival to an enthusiastic Midnight Madness crowd and it will screen at Fantastic Fest this weekend.

Jonathan Sehring and Lisa Schwartz, co-presidents of IFC Films/Sundance Selects:

Emma Tammi’s impressive debut into narrative filmmaking starring a break out performance from Caitlin Gerard packs the kind of fierce ingenuity we are continually searching for when we distribute films. We’re thrilled to bring such an intelligently crafted and distinct vision in the horror genre to audiences around the country. 

Director Emma Tammi with producers Christopher Alender and David Viste said in a statement: 

IFC’s history of cultivating large audiences for smart, genre-bending films makes them the ideal partner to bring this beautiful, thought-provoking and ultimately horrifying film to market. It is an important time to champion storytelling that takes risks, and IFC emboldens those narratives that challenge and move us, while entertaining. We are very excited to be part of the family and look forward to working with their talented team to bring THE WIND to the U.S. audience. 

A femme-centric western and supernatural horror, the film is

a nightmarish yet empathetic exploration of domestic solitude, skillfully conjuring — in bone-chilling visual and sonic strokes — an indescribable spectre that seems to emanate from the abyss of the night itself. 

THE WIND is directed by Emma Tammi from a screenplay written by Teresa Sutherland. It stars Caitlin Gerard, Julia Goldani Telles, Ashley Zukerman, Dylan McTee, and Miles Anderson. There isn't currently word on just when IFC Midnight plans to release the film, but once again, make sure to take note that the movie will be screening at Fantastic Fest this weekend if you're headed that way.
