Indie movie distributor Film Movement will release documentary MINE, a South by Southwest winner, theatrically the same day it releases the film through iTunes.
MINE explores the relationship between humans and pets against the backdrop of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, as people searched for their pets. They even go into the custody battles that arise over pets. SadOverload.com!
The film first hits theaters in San Francisco as well as iTunes Jan. 8. Theatrical runs in New York and New Orleans will follow as part of a national 20-city U.S. release.
According to Film Movement’s president, Adley Gartenstein, “It has always been important to Film Movement to bring the very best in independent and arthouse film to as wide an audience as possible, without being held prisoner by traditional distribution windows. We are very proud to announce this theatrical day-and-date iTunes movie release and are confident that it will open the door to a successful new arena of film distribution, enabling a wider audience.”
Preorders of MINE are available now through the iTunes store.
