I'm pleased to announce that BLUMENTHAL will have its theatrical and digital platform release through GoDigital. The structure of the deal is many-fold, but here are the main details (I'll get to the filmmaker relevant stuff in another post). We will have a short theatrical run in New York with a "day-and-date" release. That means that as the film is released into the cinema, it is simultaneously made available across all major VOD platforms such as Cable OnDemand, iTunes, Amazon, etc. After that, the film will move into subscription-based VOD like Netflix, HULU, etc. The theatrical release date will be in late March 28th in NYC. After the initial theatrical run, BLUMENTHAL will have theatrical stints in other select markets. One month prior to the theatrical release (now!), BLUMENTHAL will be available exclusively on Vutopia, an OnDemand service available to Time Warner Cable subscribers. The Vutopia run will cease after the standard VOD release ensues.
The path to finding the right distributor has a been a long one. There are so many ways to get your film out there nowadays, that finding the right partnership for distribution is that much more important. With GoDigital, we've found a true enthusiasm and support for the film. Recently GoDigital merged with Variance Films to form a new company, Amplify. BLUMENTHAL, however will appear under the GD banner.
As I said, more filmmaker relevant stuff on the distribution front to come. For now spread the word that we are coming to a theater or TV near you!
