The Tribeca Film Festival may have been postponed this year due to the ongoing pandemic but that doesn’t mean that some of the films set to premiere at the prestigious event won’t still be snatched up by eager distributors. One such film is Egor Abramenko’s feature-length directorial debut Sputnik, which is based on a short film that he released in 2017 titled The Passenger.
Deadline announced that IFC Midnight has acquired the rights for North America and is set to release the film on August 14th. Sputnik was written by Andrei Zolotarev and Oleg Malovichko. The film stars Oksana Akinshina (The Bourne Supremacy), Fedor Bondarchuk, Pyotr Fyodorov and Anton Vasilev.
