Gravitas Ventures and Variance Films will jointly release seven to eight specialty titles per year theatrically in the U.S. and Canada as well as on VOD via cable, satellite, telco and online platforms. The two companies acquisition teams will be at the SXSW Film Festival seeking content for their theatrical/VOD initiative, though both companies will continue to acquire films independently at the festival.
Gravitas Ventures and Variance Films have joined forces to acquire and co-release 7-8 independent films a year in theaters across the US and Canada and on VOD with over 100 cable, satellite, telco and online video on demand operators. This new distribution offering will allow filmmakers a comprehensive turn-key distribution solution in two areas of the independent film world, theatrical and digital, that have shown year-over-year growth.
Beginning at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, Gravitas and Variance will utilize their acquisitions teams to seek out the best independent, documentary, and foreign films that will benefit from a day and date theatrical/VOD release. While both companies will continue to acquire films separately for their individual slates, the companies expect to be making joint offers on select SXSW titles.
