CInedigm has been ramping up its distribution slate from limited to wider release films. "In the last year, we have made tremendous strides in our entertainment efforts, distributing films from five-screen targeted releases to 20-screen day-and-day releases to films spanning 1,000 screens," said Susan Margolin, co-President of Cinedigm’s entertainment group, "and we have many more projects slated for 2013.  Tom will play a critical role in releasing these films in the ‘Cinedigm’ way – putting producers first, being good partners to the exhibition community and bringing compelling content to demanding audiences."
