James Hey wrote the script.

Last week, British streamer ITVX acquired the film directly from producer Bonaparte Films. LA’s Mind the Gap, which has financed and distributed titles such as Battle of the Damned and Office Uprising, is now launching international sales at the Cannes Market.

The Effects of Lying takes us to completely unexpected places, whilst simultaneously depicting themes and feelings that will resonate with everyone to a certain degree,” said Mind the Gap’s Giulia Prenna. “It’s so refreshing to see a diverse range of fully rounded South Asian characters, who are given space to be messy and complicated, without conforming to fit into a certain box, so we are thrilled to be bringing this witty and exciting film to the international market in Cannes.”
