Latino distributor Maya Entertainment will premiere film festival favorite Sleep Dealer day-and-date April 17 both theatrically and on demand through a partnership with TVN Entertainment.
Sleep Dealer is a sci-fi thriller, directed by Alex Rivera, that won awards at both the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and the Berlin Film Festival. It marks Maya’s first day-and-date theatrical/VOD release, premiering in Los Angeles and New York on 30 screens and on demand in 10 million homes in 25 markets nationally.
“It is a perfect entry for us into day and date — it’s futuristic though current and well-regarded, much like VOD is to savvy consumers,” said Maya Entertainment co-chairman Jeff Valdez, who headed the deal with TVN.
