Filmbank and Unleashing Giants just completed the independent pilot sale for "Up North" to Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios. Filmbank owns the rights to the hit video game “The 7th Guest” and is currently developing it into a film and television series.

The HBO film had premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it was selected as the AT&T showcase feature by Jane Rosenthal and Robert DeNiro, and at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin - both huge honors.
