Last week we completed a deal with First Run Features for North American distribution. First Run Features is one of the pre-eminent distributors of independent films and documentaries in the country. Their roster includes such notable films as “Circo”, “The Man Nobody Knew”, “The Twilight Samurai”, “Bhutto”, “The Trials of Henry Kissinger”, “Ballerina”, “49 UP”, and “A Jihad for Love”. They have extensive experience with distributing feature-length documentaries and love our film, so we are have landed in very good hands.
Ok, so what does this deal mean? This means the film will be available on DVD and likely several digital outlets for download, which may include Amazon, iTunes, Netflix, and Hulu. FRF will also be seeking a broadcast deal with a cable network. They are keen to time the release with the real D-Day anniversary as well as the 2013 Oklahoma D-Day game, so the film will likely be released in May. We’ll post here the instant it becomes available.
This has been a long road for us (five years) and we couldn’t have done it without the help of those of you who lent us your support, words of encouragement, and kind donations along the way. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the news and hope you are, too.
