Thus Cinedigm is adding veteran acquisition exec Vince Scordino as VP of theatrical acquisitions. Two internal promotions also take effect: Emily Rothschild is now acquisitions director, and Kristen Harris is theatrical acquisitions director. (See McGurk's LAFF keynote speech here.)
Scordino was most recently at Millenium Entertainment, where he led the acquisitions of Richard Linklater's "Bernie," Oren Moverman's "Rampart" and Elgin James' "Little Birds." Before that he was an executive at the short-lived Apparition, where he was involved with acquiring Jean-Marc Valle's "The Young Victoria" and Nash Edgerton's "The Square."
Rothschild oversees all acquisitions for New Video's prestige documentary label Docurama Films, and will handle theatrical, DVD, VOD and digital release across New Video's brands. Since joining with New Video and Docurama in January 2011, Rothschild has helped to buy "The Invisible War," "Being Elmo" and "Woody Allen: The Documentary."
Harris joined Cinedigm in 2011 and participated in the acquisition of "Like Water," "Citadel" and "In Our Nature." She previously worked at Overture, when it acquired "The Men Who Stare at Goats" and "Sunshine Cleaning."
