Kino Lorber to Distribute for Carlotta Films19 Sep, 2014 By: John Latchem
Kino Lorber has signed a multiyear deal to distribute packaged and digital media from Carlotta Films US in the United States. The first release under the deal will be Charles Lane's modern silent film Sidewalk Stories in October on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD.
Carlotta Films’ portfolio recent independent films and classic revivals. Recent and upcoming theatrical releases from Carlotta include Mr. X, a documentary about the mysterious and enigmatic filmmaker Leos Carax, directed by Tessa Louise-Salomé; Mauvais Sang, directed by Carax and starring Juliette Binoche; Boy Meets Girl, directed by Carax and winner of the Award of the Youth at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival; and Orson Welles' Shakespeare adaptation Othello.
“Sharing a similar philosophy about repertory, Kino Lorber is the perfect match for Carlotta Films US. In parallel with our activity as a theatrical distributor, our video releases will extend the life of our films, of our acquisitions and the work we have been doing for 18 years in France (and now in the U.S.) on cinema history," said Carlotta Films founder and manager Vincent Paul-Boncour.
"Vincent has built a distinguished and enviable brand in France. We're honored to partner with a label of such curatorial distinction, extending it to the U.S. Carlotta and Kino Lorber converge in our vision and will strongly complement each other as we advance the cause of quality cinema in North America," said Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber.
