Realscreen presents the first trailer for Doug Block’s anticipated matrimonial doc 112 Weddings, which kicks off the 17th annual Full Frame Documentary Festival in North Carolina this week.

The 92-minute film, which will open the North Carolina festival on Thursday (April 3), sees filmmaker Block (The Kids Grow Up51 Birch Street) revisiting couples whose wedding days he has filmed over the past 20 years, to see how they are getting on in their marriages.

When it was being pitched to commissioners two years ago, the film was one of the highlights of the 2012 Hot Docs Forum, with realscreen singling it out at the time, and describing it as the doc with “perhaps the greatest potential to crossover and succeed on a wide number of international networks, including almost any female-skewing net that airs wedding-themed programming.”

After playing at Full Frame, the doc will have its Canadian premiere at Hot Docs in Toronto, before playing on HBO in the U.S. on June 30.

The BBC has UK TV rights for the doc, while ZDF/Arte has the film for Germany, CBC has Canadian TV covered, and Dogwoof Global has international distribution rights, and will be selling the film at MIPTV.
