Digital distributor Cinedigm has partnered with Drafthouse Films to release a slate of critically acclaimed independent films across all home entertainment and VOD platforms beginning in 2014.
Films on the docket include this year's must-see Herzog and Morris-produced genocide doc "The Act of Killing," directed by Joshua Oppenheimer, and the highly anticipated, pre-theatrical VOD releases of SXSW hit "Cheap Thrills," Ben Wheatley's "A Field in England" and two well-reviewed Cannes films, "The Congress" (Ari Folman's sci-fi followup to "Waltz with Bashir") and "Borgman."
Drafthouse Films, the distribution arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, made a splash this year with "The Act of Killing" (our TOH! review) and has partnered with VICE and VHX to offer free downloads of the film to audiences across Indonesia, where the film takes place.
In addition to VOD channels, Cinedigm and Drafthouse will release the films on DVD/Blu-Ray and broadcast television.
