Oscilloscope Grabs Milestone Library6 Aug, 2009 By: Chris Tribbey
New York-based Oscilloscope Laboratories has reached a three-year distribution agreement with Milestone Films, giving Oscilloscope rights to Milestone’s entire library of independent features, documentaries, and foreign and silent films.
The first release under the agreement will be 1961’s The Exiles. Also coming this year is 1978’s Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives.
“The Milestone team does amazing work,” said Adam Yauch, head of Oscilloscope. “Clearly they care deeply about the films they choose to release and how they release them. And to be quite frank, I’m a little envious that they beat us to the punch on I Am Cuba.”
