Congratulations to Roberto Mitrotti’s “Stealing Chanel” that won the Best Director and Best Actress awards for Lydia Hearst at the 2015 International Film Festival of Manhattan. For more information about the film check http://www.gallopingfilms.com/stealing-channel/
Galloping Films is proud to announce that it acquired award winning director Paul Cox’s highly emotional film “Force of Destiny.” David Wenham (“Lord of the Rings”, 300”) plays Robert whose family is stunned when he is diagnosed with cancer of the liver and six months to live. In the process of physical decline and mental turmoil, Robert meets Maya (Shahana Goswami: “Ra.One”) who comes from a different world and he is put on the transplant list. Robert’s passion for Maya intensifies as he confronts the agony and ecstasy of finding the love that has evaded him his entire life, just as his body is about to be taken from him.

At the Marche du Film in Cannes Galloping Films shared a stand with Amadeus Entertainment, an ambitious UK based sales agent, where we decided to represent each others catalogues in markets that one of us doesn’t attend. This new cooperation will greatly benefit our producers since we’ll be able to cover more territories and make more sales, in the same period of time.
