According to Home Media Retailing, IFC is taking away the window times between theatrical releases and Video-On-Demand.
Calling this new distribution company IFC First Take, two indy films are going to be offered On Demand each month at the same time those films begin their theatrical runs. Some of the films that are going to launch this new venture are CSA: The Confederate States of America, I Am A Sex Addict and Three Times.
“For more than 10 years, IFC, has strived to provide independent filmmakers with a strong voice and to help expand the audience for independent film,” stated IFC president Jonathan Sehring. “We are doing more here than simply collapsing windows — IFC’s First Take will serve the independent community by creating an electronic national art house for independent films.”
Release dates for the first films have yet to be announced.
