OEE signs distribution agreement with Warner Bros

Odin's Eye Entertainment (OEE) today announced that it has signed an agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution (WBDD) for electronic sell through (EST) and video on demand (VOD) distribution of its films via cable, satellite and broadband platforms in North America. OEE anticipates direct distribution of approximately 20 films per year, into the North American market through the deal, with the first titles slated for release in June 2012. 

“This deal is the centerpiece of our US strategy, and a huge coup for both OEE and our producers,” said OEE founder Michael Favelle. 

“Warner Bros. Digital Distribution is amongst the best in the game and with their complete digital footprint our films will be in safe and experienced hands. While many films we represent will follow the traditional sales model, this deal gives us increased flexibility to secure the best financial return for our producing partners.”

More 4 Me screening at Cannes Film Market 2012

Creation Box Films is proud to announce that its debut international award-winning feature documentary More 4 Me will screen at the 2012 CANNES FILM MARKET this month, represented by Moon Shadow Films (New York). Moon Shadow Films' Aleta Chappelle said she was inspired by the documentary - "it is so well put together and I love the many messages it conveys. It made me think how I can do more for the greater good of those who have so little."

The film recently opened the weekend of the Australian Film Festival during which organisers compared it to the work of Michael Moore. Last year the documentary also won the Times Square Audience Award for Best Documentary at the New York City International Film Festival.
