Filmmaker Hal Hartley and his long-time editor Steve Hamilton have formed the Possible Films Collection, a new distribution company that will open its first film, Richard Sylvarnes“The Cloud of Unknowing,” today in New York City.

Described as a “quietly intense ghost movie, “the film is the story of a young doctor who fears that his late wife’s spirit is inhabiting the mind of a patient. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival and also screened at other fests including Raindance, Jeonju in South Korea, and a showcase at the Anthology Film Archives.

In a statement, producer Hartley noted that the film was made in 2000 and after its positive festival notices, he and the producers agreed to include the movie on a DVD collection, later adding in a limited theatrical run at the Pioneer Theater in Manhattan. Hamilton’s Mad Mad Judy in New York handled post-production on the film.

In a statement, Hamilton said, “We will be producing, acquiring and distributing films that are a result of our combined companies’ resources and talent pool, as well as films from other directors, who like us, are anxious to see a greater diversity of films being programmed.”

In November, Possible Films will release a collection of Hal Hartley’s short films on DVD. The company also represents the worldwide rights to some Hartley features, including “Flirt” and “Henry Fool.”
