The first DVD titles will be available to consumers beginning in July 2011.

“Vivendi is a recognized leader in content distribution, and we are proud to work with such a talented and accomplished team,” said Singh Mann. “Vivendi is the ideal home for Indomina titles in the ancillary marketplace as they truly understand our vision and unique marketing approach to reach our dedicated core audience.

The output deal with Vivendi Entertainment reinforces Indomina’s strategy to establish a leadership position in the independent film market, focusing on genre based content and creating a destination for young, dedicated consumers of the fanboy culture. In addition to the aforementioned films, the company has recently acquired Fire of Conscience, Wasted on the Young, The Pack and Outcast for release.

Indomina Releasing’s debut theatrical release is the martial arts feature True Legend, which will open in select North American markets this May.
