Alliance Films has picked up Canadian rights to Carl Bessai’s Repeaters from Rampart Films. The deal was negotiated by Andrew Herwitz, president of the Film Sales Company on behalf of the filmmakers, with Mark Slone working the deal for Alliance Films. Alliance plans a 2011 roll-out.

Repeaters, which premiered as a special presentation at TIFF in September, stars Dustin Milligan (90210), Amanda Crew (Charlie St.Cloud) and Richard de Klerk (Cole).

The film follows three young people in a rehabilitation center as they relive the same events each day – although the repetition becomes less about finding a second chance and more about the opportunity to behave with impunity. What was a day to make amends with families instead disintegrates into violence.

“It’s very fulfilling that the quality of Repeaters has been recognized by Alliance Films,” said Carl Bessai. “With their proven track record I know Repeaters will have an excellent run. I am looking forward to working with them on the release.”
