Canadian-based ID Communications Inc. has announced an agreement with Los Angeles-based Grindstone Entertainment Group LLC for the feature film ‘Ecstasy of Gold.” It was announced today in Cannes by Dan Shannon, President of ID Communication that it will be released in the US by Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
“I met Adam in Cannes last year with his nearly completed film, and it seems fitting that one year later, we are announcing this deal, not only for a North American release of his directorial debut film, but also for its screening at the Cannes Market for international markets,” said Shannon in a statement. “In a past life in DVD distribution, we has quite a bit of success on home video with western titles, and ‘Ecstasy of Gold’ has the elements required to do very well in my opinion. We look forward to expanding on this current deal in Cannes with numerous conversations already underway.”
“Ecstasy of Gold” will screen at the Cannes Market on May 12, 2pm, Gray 1 Cinema.
