Dear Arthouse Cinema Fans,
As we transition into some great movie watching weather, Corinth Films is happy to bring you another round of stimulating arthouse home video releases. As you read this, our superb dramas Dede, Dark Fortune, As If I Am Not There and Calm At Seawill be available on DVD and can be purchased on Amazon and will also be immediately watchable on Amazon Prime. Also available on Amazon Prime and Vimeo On Demand is our new drama from Latvia Mellow Mud, about teenage survival in the face of total family dysfunction.
Corinth Films had recently attended the American Film Market in Santa Monica (or AFM as it’s known in the industry) to scout for new films to acquire and distribute. We have currently entered into negotiations with a sales agent representing several films we feel would be an excellent addition to our movie library, and we hope to have good news about this in the near future.
On February 5th, we will have several more DVD releases to share and more acquisitions to announce. Stay tuned for more movie news and don’t forget to like our Facebook page and subscribe to our YouTube channel!
