Three SXSW 2007 premieres announced distribution news this week. Congrats to all the filmmakers! The films include:
Jennifer Venditti’s SXSW award-winning documentary, Billy The Kid, will begin a theatrical release on December 5 courtesy of new indie outfit Elephant Eye. Brian Brooks at indieWIRE has the news.
Ti West’s gripping and taut wilderness thriller, Trigger Man, follows its SXSW 2007 premiere with news of a pickup by Kino International for the rest of its American release. It opened in New York two weeks ago, but Kino will handle a DVD release next Spring. Trigger Man is also on a foreign sales stampede at AFM right now. Dade Hayes has the story for Variety.
Dan Cox’s SXSW 2007 premiere documentary, Running With Arnold, announced a distribution pact with Netflix’s Red Envelope Entertainment. The DVD division will release this Arnold Schwarzenegger campaign chronicle next year, after Lantern Lane Entertainment manages a multi-city theatrical opening. Get more on the details, over at Variety.
