This year for Cannes Film Festival we have joint forces together with the leading Nordic producers and film makers to bring the most exiting genre movies and TV series under one roof.
This is what people is commenting about the Nordic Genre Invasion:
LittleBig Productions (American Burger), and Blind Spot Pictures (Iron Sky) are joining forces to meet the audience strong wish for simultaneous access on all platforms.
The mission is to bring American Burger directly to the audience and make the film available all over the world – in all platforms.
American Burger is a happy horror comedy written and directed by first-time filmmakers Bonita Drake & Johan Bromander. The directors bring a busload of American students on a culture trip in Europe. In the middle of nowhere they stumble upon a mysterious Hamburger stand and are about to realize that European notion of American Hamburgers is terrifyingly different to what they’re used to…
The global day-and-date release is planned for late autumn this year, the exact date to be released soon. American Burger will be available as original English language version with subtitling in several different languages.
“We believe the time is right for a distribution that is adjusted to the wishes and demands of the film lovers out there. The audience is a powerful driving force and we strongly believe that this model will accommodate their wish and proof it’s the way to go in future distribution.” (Producer Anna G Magnusdottir, LittleBig Productions)
“Having followed the distribution of Iron Sky, another fan-driven, Internet-active film, I’m bound to believe that a day-and-date release for such films, like American Burger, where worldwide Internet audience can have an access to the film as soon as possible in the best possible quality, without the hindrance of DRM, is the best strategy.” (Timo
Vuorensola, Iron Sky)
“Global release is such an exciting thing. For us as directors a Global event and meeting the audience directly is a dream come true. It’s like saying, “Here you go World, have
some American Burger! Enjoy!” (Directors Bonita Drake & Johan Bromander)

Galindo also explains how “bricherismo” is a life style, typically encountered in the world’s tourist places. More on this phenomenon, as well as exclusive footage from movie GRINGA, in the video interview below.
