IFC Bows 3 SXSW Films On Demand, Including White Stripes Film4 Mar, 2010 By: Billy Gil
IFC Films has announced the three films it will release on demand day-and-date with their premieres at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival.
White Stripes fans, rejoice! March 12 will see the U.S. premiere and VOD debut of Emmett Malloy’s The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights, a document of their 2007 Canadian tour, culminating at the Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, for the band’s 10th anniversary show. March 15 comes Lovers of Hate, a dark comedy about sibling rivalry that IFC films bought at Sundance, from director Bryan Poyser (Independent Spirit Award nominee Dear Pillow). March 16 comes Le Donk & Scor-Zay-Zee, a rock mockumentary from British director Shane Meadows (This Is England) in the Spinal Tap vein about a roadie and failed musician who try to make rapper Scor-Zay-Zee a star with the help of the Arctic Monkeys.
The films will be available on the movies-on-demand platform of many major cable operators, such as Cablevision, Comcast, Cox Communications, Time Warner and Bright House, which together hit about 40 million homes.
