Cloud Ten Pictures, the Los Angeles producer of faith-based content, has signed a distribution deal for its library titles and upcoming features with New York-based Koch Entertainment and Nashville's CNI Distribution.

Koch will replace Sony Pictures Home Entertainment as Cloud Ten's North American DVD and video retail distributor of the existing library, including the Left Behind franchise.

'We're ramping up in a lot of areas, from production right through to our own full post-production house, and Koch's commitment to us and the marketplace is a big reason we're able to do it all,' newly appointed CEO Andre van Heerden said.

CNI Distribution, which is a division of Christian Network International and one of the largest independent distributors of Christian content, will serve as the exclusive fulfillment and distribution agent for the Cloud Ten Church Cinemas and as distributor for all of Cloud Ten's direct-to-churches, consumer and specialty market sales throughout the US.

All upcoming features produced or acquired by Cloud Ten will be released through Cloud Ten Church Cinemas before Koch handles retail DVD and video and CNI handles the specialty markets.
