Partnering with Fantastic Fest
The films will simultaneously be available nationwide via the movies-on-demand platform of major national cable systems, including Cablevision, Comcast, Cox Communications, Time Warner Cable and Bright House, and will be available in approximately 40 million homes.
IFC Midnight will also make three acclaimed films from Fantastic Fest 2009 available on demand as part of this initiative including: Tom Six’s The Human Centipede, Kim Ji-Woon’s The Good, the Bad, and the Weird, and Jake West’s Doghouse. Primal director Josh Reed and Red, White & Blue director Simon Rumley will be in attendance at Fantastic Fest screenings. Heartless will open at the IFC Center in New York on November 21.
Jonathan Sehring, president of IFC Entertainment, said, “Following our successful day-and-date on demand partnerships with SXSW and Sundance, which have included several genre films, a partnership with Fantastic Fest is the next logical step. Tim League has cultivated some of the genre’s most enthusiastic fans, and Fantastic Fest is an ideal festival with which to launch these four amazing films nationwide.”
