The word from Alliance Atlantis is that they plan to release the film here in Canada in October after the Toronto Film Festival which happens in early September. We have not heard yet whether the film will be in the Toronto Festival yet or not. The film will also be presented here in Halifax in late September at the Atlantic Film Festival. Myriad Pictures, the foreign sales agent has made numerous sales to other countries.
