(Toronto, ON – October 1, 2014): Just as one of the biggest film festivals in the world has wrapped, The Fremantle Corporation brings the exciting documentary BEHIND THE RED CARPET to MIPCOM. Produced by Barking Frog Productions and Mountain Goat Film Company, BEHIND THE RED CARPET reveals the untold secrets and pressure-fuelled stories of the key players and celebrities involved with Toronto International Film Festival.
"Whenever we are able to showcase a project with exclusive stories and interesting characters to the market, we are excited. BEHIND THE RED CARPET has garnered a ton of interest as celebrities, red carpets and uncensored access has worldwide appeal,” says The Fremantle Corporation President, Randy Zalken.
BEHIND THE RED CARPET is currently available on ITunes (excluding Canada) and will launch this month on Xbox, Google and Sony. CBC's documentary Channel will air the Canadian Television Premiere in February 2015.
