David Koh, Josh Braun and Dan Braun negotiated the deals on behalf of Submarine Entertainment with Ron Mann of filmswelike.
“filmswelike is a perfect home for our films and our filmmakers and producers and we are excited to work with Ron Mann and his team on the successful release of these great films” Koh, Braun and Braun of Submarine said.
“One often hears at film festivals that documentaries played better than the fiction films,” Ron Mann added. “Case in point: these documentaries, which all played major film festivals struck us as really the best in contemporary cinema. And we’re honoured to be able to present them to audiences in Canada.”
