the film releasing company

Congratulations to some Daylight-makers!


Great to see good things happen with Cinema Purgatorio alumni. The stars, writers, and producers of Daylight are now making a film with Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, and Brian Geraghty. Fun to hope we’ll release that film, too, but for Michael Godere, Ivan Martin, and Parts and Labor’s bank accounts’ sake, let’s hope that CP gets outbid by Warner Brothers and Paramount. Congrats, guys, good luck, and thanks for being so great to work with (and not disrespecting CP for being small but stepping up on Daylight when no one else would)!

Images from the Arctic Snow Room

We’ve got photos from the creation of the Arctic Snow Room.  That’s the place in Rovaniemi – the capital of Lappland, Finland, on the Arctic Circle – where Inni recently screened.

Click on each individual image to enlarge.  Flatlightfilms.com made the venue, and you should check out their site, too.
Inni is also up on Youtube and Google Play.  So, we have gone from the release of a mysterious clip, through a world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, to gigantic screens around the world including Nasa við Austurvöll in Reykjavik, the Geode in Paris, the Ritz in Minneapolis, the Michigan in Ann Arbor, the Australian Cinematheque in Melbourne, the Curzon Mayfair in London, Sala Hermilo Novelo in Mexico City, Asahi Za in post-tsunami Fukushima, and the Hanoi Cinematheque, through other big and little cinemas and rock clubs and improvised venues all over the place (including the Arctic Snow Room and also the North House Folk School in Grand Marais), three sold out shows last week in a Buenos Aires shopping mall cinema . . . to you possibly renting Inni right now on your Android phone and on your desktop through Youtube, right here on this page.  Thank you to everyone who has been there, somewhere.

I Was Thinking About B-Movies: Daylight Scene Commentary

Check out this exclusive Daylight commentary by writer / director David Barker and producer Jay van Hoy.  David is a very idiosyncratic, deep thinker about film, and Jay is an incredibly responsive and responsible (not to mention successful) producer.  The commentary gives great perspective on the process and thinking behind the love story (?) thriller.

Daylight finally streets on DVD this week.  Discs are for rent from Family Video (if your branch doesn’t have one, ask) and Netflix; DVDs are for sale direct from us.


Encores

To celebrate tonight’s encore Tokyo screening of Inni, enjoy some new videos and posters.

Vincent Morisset and some cohorts made a short film about the special effects techniques on Inni.

Here is a video for one of the songs Jónsi did for the new film We Bought a Zoo. That film is probably playing near you.

Many more screenings of Inni are still coming up around the world. They’re all listed below, and include a (really late) show tonight in Brooklyn; still more are on their way.

As always, the best information about Sigur Rós is at sigur-ros.co.uk.

Merry Christmas.

Breaking Light

little girls point-lake superior

Lots of light breaking today.

Daylight has beamed along a singular path, from early rehearsals through a blisteringly fast shoot, extended post-production, select festival screenings, scaring Marisa Tomei out of a Lower East Side theater space, an acclaimed theatrical run… and now to your computer, right now, from iTunes or Amazon.  Or, later tonight, settle in for a view through your cable movies on demand, PS3, or Xbox.  (The DVD is coming later.)  Seriously, it’s a great date movie.

Oh, and, no, it’s not the Daylight with Sylvester Stallone.  This is the other one.

The Afterlight has gone through a different prism.  This haunted drama shot from the Rome Film Festival through select theatrical screenings, all the way to a DVD at your local video store.  For all you Zenith fans out there, The Afterlight also stars the mesmerizing Ana Asensio.  Itunes and Amazon downloads are coming soon.

Michigander movie palaces, Inni heldover and brought back all over the place, new Jónsi song

Cool old movie theatres in Michigan are into Inni. Following a great show at Grand Rapids’ Wealthy Theatre this past weekend, on December 5th Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theater – a beautiful old cave that has this cool old organ – and Traverse City’s State Theatre both screen the film.

Meanwhile, the film holds for another week in Helena and New York – including some matinees, for you morning people – and also is coming back to Los Angeles, London, Leeds, Paris, Minneapolis, and Austin (Texas). More stuff going on in Atlanta, San Francisco, Silver Spring (Maryland), Phoenixville (Pennsylvania), Atlanta, a mountain village in Italy . . . It’s all here.


In somewhat related news, here’s a free stream from Jónsi’s soundtrack to the upcoming film We Bought a Zoo.
