Iris Indie International is licensing the award-winning LGBTQ+ film 'Ganymede' from Palais Booth 19.05 at the Marché du Film at the Cannes Film Festival.

Directed by Colby Holt and Sam Probst, "Ganymede" is a compelling Southern gothic thriller that delves into the life of Lee Fletcher IV, a high school star athlete in the rural South wrestling his family dynamics, identity and emerging sexuality. As Lee navigates a burgeoning relationship with his openly gay classmate Kyle, he is haunted by a sinister supernatural entity that both terrorizes and mirrors his internal struggle.

The film, celebrated for its bold storytelling and exploration of complex themes such as LGBTQ+ identity and acceptance, won the Audience Award at The Reeling Chicago LGBTQ+ International Film Festival with additional international festival screenings on tap including the Chattanooga Film Festival in June.

Producer Stephen Stanley expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership with Iris Indie International. "Their passion for distributing films that provoke thought and encourage dialogue is exactly what 'Ganymede' needs to connect with a global audience."

In addition, the producers of "Ganymede" are concluding a deal for North American distribution rights to be announced in the near future. This anticipated announcement will further solidify the film's standing and reach within the domestic market.

Iris Indie International is also bringing five other award-winning films and two documentaries to Cannes this year, demonstrating its commitment to diverse and meaningful cinema.
