Leading digital distributor takes VOD and TV rights to Canadian boutique distributor’s catalogue, including Down Terrace [pictured].
FilmBuff has picked up VOD and TV rights through Canada to Evokative Films’ library.
Titles in the Canadian company’s library include Satoshi Miki’s Adrift in Tokyo, Ben Wheatley’s debut feature Down Terrace and Cédric Anger’s The Killer.
Stephanie Trepanier, Evokative Films founder, commented: “I very much wanted to input the Evokative library on the new VOD channels, but they were not yet ready to take in international films from an independent distributor.
“This past spring, I met the good people at FilmBuff, who saw the potential of Evokative’s library of films. Hopefully, we will very soon see these films on iTunes, Netflix and other VOD channels and TV stations.”
FilmBuff’s head of content partnerships Steven Beckman added: “We are thrilled to be working with Stephanie to make these films available digitally in Canada. Our distribution reach in Canada allows for us to really help these films reconnect with audiences in a meaningful way.”
Based in New York, FilmBuff films reach an audience of over 200m people, with titles available on all major on-demand and digital platforms around the world. Recent FilmBuff releases include The Network, Red Obsession, The House I Live In and 3 Days of Normal.
