Video Services Corp (VSC) and Magnolia Pictures inked a two-year multi-platform Canadian distribution deal. Under the agreement, VSC will release up to 30 films a year exclusively for the Canadian market.
In the past year VSC has enjoyed handling a successful string of theatrical releases of Magnolia films, including A Hijacking, Bad Milo!, Prince Avalanche and Touchy Feely. The deal starts off with the release of the award-winning Israeli film Big Bad Wolves in January 2014, followed in March by Alan Partridge, already a hit in the UK, starring Steve Coogan. Other projected 2014 releases include the horror anthology The ABCs of Death 2 and Toronto International Film Festival selections Life’s a Breeze and The Sacrament.
Magnolia Pictures and its genre arm Magnet Releasing are the international distributors of acclaimed documentaries, narrative features and genre films, including Blackfish, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia and the upcoming Nymphomaniac, the Ong Bak trilogy and many, many more.
