Fox Searchlight Acquires Worldwide Rights for Exit Director Shelly Lauman's 'BIRDIE'

Fox Searchlight has acquired worldwide rights to writer-director Shelly Lauman’s short film 'BIRDIE' (2018), after it had its international premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last week.
Produced by Lizzie Cater, BIRDIE had its first international screening in Toronto following its world premiere at MIFF.
The film is a psychological thriller that follows a young woman who meets a man as she descends the stairs to an underground platform, leading to a subtle and sinister game.
TIFF Short Cuts programmer Jason Anderson said [via Inside Film]: “It’s largely unprecedented for a studio to venture into the shorts world like this and see this as an opportunity to support emerging filmmakers so we’re hugely excited.”
This news comes just 8-weeks after Lauman released her first major international campaign for Moccona, which followed the release of ‘Unexpected Victim’—a compelling piece for the UN with IOM-X bringing awareness to and breaking down gender mythologies around sexual exploitation.
