UK-based sales agent Dogwoof has sold fashion doc Dior and I (pictured) into Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The documentary, from filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, Valentino: The Last Emperor), has been picked up in all-rights deals by Madman (Australia and New Zealand), Open Sesame/Alcine/Bunkamura (Japan), EDKO (Hong Kong) and Sky Dig Entertainment (Taiwan).

The film premiered at Tribeca earlier this year, and follows Raf Simons as the newly appointed creative director for fashion house Dior. It documents the creation and unveiling of his Dior Haute Couture Collection.

The sales were brokered by Ana Vicente at Dogwoof, who is holding further talks at TIFF in Toronto with buyers from France, Benelux and Italy, according to the sales agent.

“Dior is one of the most popular and prestigious brands in Japan,” said Open Sesame’s Kaho Nakane. “We currently plan to release the film next spring.”

Dior and I will be released in North America by eOne in early 2015, with other foreign territories following thereafter.
