Michael Paul Stephenson’s documentary, “Best Worst Movie,” which had its world premiere at South by Southwest and has since gone on to receive several festival awards, will be theatrically released by Area 23A, the event-based film distribution company.
The film marks Stephenson’s directorial debut. It explores his involvement in one of the most critically reviled movies ever made, “Troll 2.”
Of the acquisition, Stephenson said in a press release: “Our movie – that we have devoted the last four years to – can not be in better hands than with Area23A. They have demonstrated their ability to skillfully handle specialized films in a crowded market place.”
Area 23A is currently distributing “Soundtrack for a Revolution,” “The Mighty Uke,” “American Harmony,” and “They Came to Play.”
