During the past American Film Market (AFM) 7 &7 Producer;s Sales Services announced they would be the international sales agent for the U.S. romantic comedy Shirin in Love. It was also confirmed that the film will see a U.S. theatrical release on an exclusive basis with AMC in at least 15 major markets at AMC theaters. For its first market screening, the film will be part of the EFM in Berlin this February. 

Written and directed by by Ramin Niami the film is set in the affluent Iranian-American Beverly Hills community, and stars Nazanin Boniadi ( Homeland’s new CIA analyst, How I Met Your Mother’s Nora) as Shirin, a quirky twenty-something who, on the eve of her wedding, causes turmoil for her loving family and for her fiancé when an enigmatic handsome outsider opens her eyes to a world very different from the glitz of ‘Tehrangeles.” Riley Smith and Academy Award nominee Amy Madigan co-star with comedians Maz Jobrani and George Wallace rounding out the international cast.

7 & 7’s managing director Maura Ford said: “Shirin in Love is such an appealing movie for the international market. Boasting a lovely leading lady with all the daffy charm of a young Goldie Hawn and a leading man to die for, it affectionately satirizes the Iranian-American community but also carries a very positive message of ‘different but the same’ that will strike a chord internationally not only in the burgeoning Middle Eastern markets but also in an increasingly multicultural Europe.”

Producer Karen Robson also mentioned that the company has produced a superb Farsi dubbed version that will also screen in select US cities and will be available to foreign distributors

For more information on the film and 7 & 7 visit HERE.  7 & 7’s philosophy is that, for an independently financed film, it is in the producer’s and Investors’ best interest to retain control of the only tangible asset, The Film. With the help of 7 & 7 Producers’ Service, the film can be sold globally, licensed directly with all the international distributors, maximizing revenue at the source by allowing the producer to retain control of the equity investment for the life of its exploitation and enjoy first hand success of the film.
