iW NEWS | Amazon Launches VOD/DVD Deal with Cinetic; 20 Films Online Monthly

By Indiewire | Indiewire November 13, 2008 at 8:56AM

Dave McLaughlin's "On Broadway" and Rob Epstein's "The Times of Harvey Milk" are two of the titles debuting this month on Amazon Video on Demand in the wake of a new partnership with Cinetic Rights Management (CRM) that will bring independent films to audiences via Amazon and CreateSpace DVD on Demand. The deal between CRM and Amazon will place about twenty films on Amazon each month, one debuting exclusively each month. Others on tap for Amazon this month include Sweaty Robot's "Happy Birthday, Harris Malden," Curt Johnson's "Your Mommy Kills Animals," and Vern Oakley's "A Modern Affair." Additional November films have not yet been announced. "Audiences are no longer required to live in a specific city to see new and classic independent film," CRM's Matt Dentler said today, in a statement. "All they need now is an Internet connection." "On Broadway," profiled yesterday by indieWIRE, is November's CRM exclusive on Amazon. [Eugene Hernandez]
