Maya Entertainment has picked up domestic distribution rights for Sleep Dealer, the incredible looking arthouse/cyberpunk/scifi flick which we've been following even before it's premier at Sundance. Maya is a Latino-run distribution company primarily focused on the Latino market, and they plan to market the film to the arthouse, scifi gamer, and the Latino market. Fortissimo has also sold distribution rights for Australia/New Zealand to Roadshow, Svensk for Scandinavia, and NHK for Japanese TV. The film has to do with Mexican's working via telepresence, anti-terrorist robot drones, and blogging memories. No release date has been set but I sure hope they hurry up, I'm dying to see this one. Lots of links after the break.

The Simon Fraser University Library, located in British Columbia, Canada, would like a price quote for one copy of the film " Sleep Dealer" for classroom use in Canada.
Can you please provide the price for the film with the right to show it in Classroom.
Thank you very much for your time and assistance in this matter.
Best regards,
