Submarine Entertainment has penned further sales for Liz Garbus’s hit TIFF doc Love, Marilyn (pictured), selling the film into Australia and New Zealand, and reaching an agreement for U.S. digital and VoD rights.

Cinedigm Entertainment Group has taken U.S. DVD, digital and VoD rights for the film, which looks at the life of late actor Marilyn Monroe by having modern day thespians read out her writing.

Submarine has also sold the film to Madman Entertainment, for Australia and New Zealand, and to Mongrel Media for Canada, as previously revealed by realscreen.

HBO acquired U.S. TV rights to the film during the Toronto International Film Festival, and Jaguar Distribution has airline rights. Submarine says the doc will have a U.S. Academy qualifying run later this year, for Oscar consideration.

The deals were negotiated by David Koh, Josh Braun and Dan Braun of Submarine Entertainment, along with Stanley Buchthal of Diamond Girl Productions on behalf of the producers and the director.

Co-president Susan Margolin and director of acquisitions Emily Rothschild acted for Cinedigm Entertainment Group; while VP of acquisitions and publicity Mona Kwan acted for Jaguar Distribution.

Love, Marilyn will be the opening night film at this year’s Hamptons Film Festival, as previously reported.
