Australian comedy Top End Wedding has been acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films for the US market.

The deal was announced by producer Goalpost Pictures Australia on Tuesday.

The film had its premiere at the Sundance festival in the US in January.

Samuel Goldwyn says that it will release the film on multiple digital platforms from early 2020.

"Top End Wedding is a delightfully fun romantic comedy that also showcases the breathtaking beauty of Australia. We can't wait to share this special film to US audiences," said Meg Longo of Samuel Goldwyn in a prepared statement.

In the past year, Samuel Goldwyn has also picked up international titles including Stray Dolls and Mr. Jones, which debuted in competition in Berlin.

Directed by Wayne Blair, Top End Wedding is the story of a successful Sydney lawyer and her fiance who have just 10 days to find her mother, who has gone AWOL somewhere in the Northern Territory.

Their quest is to reunite her parents and pull off their dream destination wedding.

It was co-written by Miranda Tapsell and Joshua Tyler, and stars Tapsell and Gwilym Lee.

Top End Wedding is the second highest grossing Australian film this year in Australia, with a box office of $US3.68 million ($A5.38 million) to date.

It has also been nominated for a clutch of Australian Academy of Cinema Television Arts Awards, including best film and best lead actress.
