“Hard to Get’ invited to screen at Fantastic Fest


Hard to Get, the 2014 action film by Zee Nthuli has been invited to
Fantastic Fest in Austin Texas from 24 September to 1 October.

Fantastic Fest is a well-known genre festival and market, specialising in horror,
fantasy, sci-fi, action and just quality movies from all around the world, and
Hard to Get director Zee Ntuli will travel there as an invited guest of
the festival and attend press events and Q&A’s of his film’s screening.

Hard to Get was produced by Junaid Ahmed and Helena Spring and is
being sold internationally by AAA Entertainment, who will also attend the event as
representatives for the film to any interested North American buyers.

AAA’s head of sales Pascal Schmitz explains, “It’s rare for South Africa to produce
genre films, especially those that travel, and Hard to Get has a great
chance of finding distribution in North America through its selection at the Fantastic
Fest. AAA Entertainment is focusing on genre films and proud to be representing
Hard to Get internationally and we believe it will pave the way for
other South African genre films in the future.

Hard to Get is a South African action thriller that was selected to open
the 2014 Durban International Film Festival. First time director Zee Ntuli’s gamble
on the action-romance genre has been highly rewarded since the film’s release and
this invitation to attend Fantastic Fest is the latest highlight. Ntuli has this to say on
the inivtation, “It is a huge honour to represent my whole team and the work we
have done at such an exciting and prestigious festival.’
