Los Angeles April 15, 2013 – FilmDistrict announced today the launch of High Top Releasing, a new boutique label which will provide theatrical booking services to independent producers. This new label, which will exist as a standalone subsidiary under FilmDistrict, will provide distribution-for-hire services including sales, in-theatre marketing and print control support, film rental negotiation and collection capabilities to independent producers who have the ability to provide their own prints-and-advertising and marketing resources. Films released under the High Top moniker will be distinct from FilmDistrict and will not be accounted for in the studio’s box-office revenue share. The label will launch with the release of romantic drama I’M IN LOVE WITH A CHURCH GIRL, in association with Mission Pictures Releasing, which stars rapper Ja Rule, alongside Adrianne Bailon and Michael Madsen; and THE ULTIMATE LIFE, sequel to THE ULTIMATE GIFT, starring Peter Fonda, Logan Bartholemew , Bill Cobbs, Lee Meriwhether and Ali Hillis.
