UK-based sales and distribution company Dogwoof has inked international deals for the documentaries Advanced Style (pictured) and The Last Impresario during the Cannes Film Festival.

Directed by Lina Plioplyte and Ari Seth Cohen, Advanced Style is based on a fashion blog and book of the same name that focuses on fashion-forward New Yorkers over the age of 60. Non Stop Entertainment took all rights for the film in Scandinavia and the Baltics.

In Japan, New Select Co. took all rights for director Gracie Otto’s The Last Impresario, which profiles London theater and film producer Michael White. Kinosmith acquired the Canadian rights to the film and I Wonder Pictures took the Italian rights.

The news comes after Dogwoof yesterday (May 15) signed on to handle international sales for documentary Dior and I, Frédéric Tcheng’s look at French fashion house Christian Dior. The company will handle sales outside of North America, in addition to releasing the film across all UK platforms through its distribution arm.
