UK-based Dogwoof will handle international sales for the Sundance-bound documentary Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny.

Directed by SXSW Film, Music and Interactive Festival co-founder Louis Black and co-directed and produced by Karen Bernstein, the doc is about the life of Boyhood and Dazed and Confused filmmaker Richard Linklater.

Dogwoof will present the film to buyers at the Sundance Film Festival – where it will have its world premiere – later this month and the European Film Market during the Berlinale in February.

The film draws upon exclusive archival footage, early screenplays, journals and interviews with Linklater and his family, colleagues and collaborators Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Kevin Smith.

The doc looks at how Linklater started making films outside the mainstream in the 1980s and 1990s and follows him as he makes his next feature Everybody Wants Some, a follow-up to his 1993 film Dazed and Confused, which will world premiere at SXSW this year.

Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny was produced by Black/Bernstein Productions and Arts+Labor in association with Picturebox. All three companies are based in Austin, Texas.
