Austin-based Drafthouse Films has partnered with Films We Like to distribute its content across Canada. The first films that will be released through the deal are “The Ambassador,” “Wrong” and “Bullhead.”

"We were initially drawn to the name of [Films We Like president] Ron Mann's integral operation, which is also his mission statement," said Drafthouse COO James Emanuel Shaprio. "And we share the same mantra at Drafthouse Films by only distributing the films we truly love and believe in. Films We Like is a perfect DNA match for our brand, and we are thrilled to have our films represented in Canada."

The arrangement was announced by the two companies at the Toronto International Film Festival Friday. The quasi-documentary “The Ambassador” will receive the first release, in theaters, on DVD and digital platforms.

"I am thrilled to present Drafthouse's hand-picked genre movies in Canada," said Mann. "I have been a longtime fan of the Drafthouse brand, which revolutionized movie-going at the Alamo Drafthouse and mind-bended audiences at the annual Fantastic Fest."

Drafthouse has recently released “Bullhead,” “Klown,” “The FP” and “The Ambassador.” Forthcoming releases include festival pick-ups “Wrong” and “Graceland.” In November, Magnet Releasing is distributing the Drafthouse-produced horror anthology “The ABCs of Death,” which will have its world premiere Friday, September 14, at the Toronto fest.
