Factory 25 has picked up worldwide rights to BAMcinemaFest, SXSW and Munich Film Festival film "Pavilion" today. The company will release it theatrically in January, followed by a DVD release in the spring. Also in the spring, "Pavilion" will hit digital platforms via Oscilloscope Laboratories as part of an exclusive digital distribution partnership.
F25's digital acquisition with O-Scope is a two-year partnership that gives the latter sole distribution rights to all of F25's catalog and upcoming releases across all digital platforms. O-Scope is the exclusive digital distributor of Milestone Films' catalog, and this is the second type of partnership for them.
"Pavilion," which is Tim Sutton's debut feature, follows a teenage boy's (Max) move from a pretty lakeside town in New York to a suburban home in Arizona to live with his father. According to Factory 25, the film, with its "mesmerizing imagery of hot summer bike rides and cool lake-bound dives" presents "the ephemerality and reverie of youth and the fragility of adolescent friendships."
Sea and Cake's Sam Prekop provides the score for the film.
