Submarine Entertainment's 'Chasing Ice' distributed in Germany by NFP marketing and distribution

German audiences will now now be able to have access to a great line-up of documentaries and narratives through a new distribution label, Periscope Pictures, being launched as the product of a partnership between Germany's NFP marketing and distribution and the American production and distribution companies Submarine Entertainment and Dakota Group. With this new alliance the newly form company plans to expand the market for its films on all platforms: Theatrical, DVD, VOD, SVOD, and TV.

"We have developed a great cooperation over the years,” commented partners Dan Braun & Josh Braun,from Submarine Entertainment, and Stanley Buchthal, from Dakota Group, in a joint statement. Through this partnership the companies' new venture is expected to release five films per year. Past Submarine titles such as Chasing Ice and Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present have been release in Germany by NFP marketing and distribution, which testifies of their compatibility and synched vision.

Describing the relationship with their colleagues in New York Christoph Ott & Alexander Thies said “We are friends who share the same taste. We believe in great films, great stories and great directors.“ NFP marketing and distribution's upcoming includes India's acclaimed The Lunchbox, German event film Wacken 3D – louder than hell as well as Sils Maria by Olivier Assayas, and Lichtjahre by Christoph Hochhäusler.
