Intandem Films, the London-based sales agent has sold Australian box office hit Beneath Hill 60 to UK distributor Momentum Pictures, part of Canadian media group Alliance Films. Beneath Hill 60 — released in Australia by Paramount Pictures on April 15 — has grossed A$1.7 million ($1.6 million) to date during its first two weeks at the box office. The film, directed by Jeremy Hartley Sims and starring Brendan Cowell, is the true story of a small platoon of Australian miners –- all untrained soldiers –- as they prepare to ignite the largest amount of explosives ever collected in one place under German lines in an attempt to end the First World War. Intandem acquired international sales rights in May last year. It starts selling the title at the Cannes Market.
