It’s a pleasure to share the news that we’ll have two films from SXSW this year, debuting on iTunes and Amazon VOD during the festival. And, then, they will be available on your local cable VOD channel starting April 1 (no foolin’). The two films are David Bond’s digital-privacy documentary, Erasing David, and Justin Molotnikov’s stand-up thriller, Crying With Laughter. If you’re attending SXSW, check out these films, the filmmakers will be in attendance. If you’re not attending SXSW, well you now have a way to see these films immediately. Why take my word for it, though? Here’s the indieWIRE article that announces it:
Two British films, one documentary and one narrative thriller set for the upcoming SXSW Film Festival, will be released digitally, day and date with their premieres at the festival in Austin this month. The films will first hit broadband VOD during the event and then debut on cable VOD two weeks later.
Cinetic Right Management has acquired digital rights to David Bond’s doc “Erasing David” and Justin Molotnikov’s thriller “Crying With Laughter” for their FilmBuff platform and will release the films on iTunes and Amazon VOD during SXSW. After the festival, they will take the films to Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, and Cox cable providers on April 1st.
