Richard Abramowitz will guide the nationwide release of the documentary through his company.
Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom’s documentary trains its sights on James ‘The Amazing’ Randi, the magician, escapologist and debunker of the paranormal.
Barry Sonnenfeld and Nick Fraser of BBC Storyville are among the executive producers.
Abramowitz is partnering with the film team using his film-makers’ participation model that provides for equitable participation without a transfer of rights.
In keeping with the business plan Abramowitz established under his Abramorama banner more than 15 years ago, the film-makers will maintain active involvement in the marketing and distribution.
“A big part of what I’ve done all these years is to empower the film-makers and work side-by-side with them so that they have a real voice in the way their films are presented,” said Abramowitz.
“An Honest Liar is a smart, insightful film and I feel privileged to be able to help Justin, Tyler and executive producer Stephanie Levy bring it out into the world.”
“We’ve been thrilled with the enormous appreciation festival audiences around the world have shown for An Honest Liar,” said Weinstein and Measom.
“Richard is the perfect partner to help us bring our film to a wider audience with his model of distribution and we’re excited to be working with him.”
The film will roll out across the country through March and April, starting with the Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York City and Nuart Cinemas in Los Angeles.
Abramorama scored a recent success under his film-maker participation model when the documentary Awake: The Life Of Yognanda grossed more than $1m after five months in release.
