Sundance shines on Canadian wrestling film

Winnipeg film-maker Dan Denton has struck gold at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Denton's documentary, B.C. Body Slams, has been picked up for international distribution by Bijou Cafe, a U.S.-based arthouse distributor.

B.C. Body Slams chronicles the exploits of two up-and-coming wrestlers and a small-time promoter on the wrestling circuit in British Columbia. It was shot in Winnipeg and British Columbia in the summer of 1999 by Denton and his company, Frozen Pond Productions.

"Financially this deal means (Bijou Cafe will) sell the markets in which they project there will be interest in the movie," Denton said. "Places like Japan, Germany, England, Australia -- where wrestling is popular and they do the pay-per-view broadcasts.

"For my company it means worldwide exposure and it means I could parlay my next project into something bigger."

Sundance is an annual showcase of independent film founded and hosted by movie star Robert Redford. It runs until Jan. 28.

Another Winnipegger, Noam Gonick, will see his film Hey Happy! screened this weekend.
