‘The Imitation Game’ Will Stuff Theaters This Holiday Weekend – Specialty Box Office Preview

25 November 2014 5:57 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The Weinstein Company’s The Imitation Game is the big kid on the block among this holiday weekend’s batch of newcomers. The title is following in the footsteps of past TWC heavyweights The King’s Speech and The Artist, both of which opened to solid box office numbers and eventually scored Oscars for Best Picture. The distributor is expecting good numbers for Imitation Game over the Thanksgiving frame. IFC Films’ horror pic The Babadook has some good buzz heading into the weekend, though it might show its biggest heft via VOD with its day-and-date rollout. Remote Area Medical is one of those films one hopes everyone will see. Timed perfectly for this time of the year’s focus on thanks and giving, the documentary shows the underbelly of America’s healthcare crisis by way of people who provide free medical services to needy people in pop-up clinics around the country. »

Healthcare Documentary ‘Remote Area Medical’ Gets U.S. Distribution

7 January 2014 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinedigm has acquired all North American rights to “Remote Area Medical,” a documentary about Americans without access to basic health care.

“Remote,” directed by Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman, made its world premiere at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. The film was produced by Reichert, Zaman and Dan O’Meara.

The film takes its name from the nonprofit Remote Area Medical, which operates pop-up health care clinics. The film was shot over three days in 2012 at the Nascar speedway in Bristol, Tenn., where nearly 2,000 people received free medical, dental, and vision care provided by a team of medical volunteers.

Cinedigm, which will release the film in the spring, said the film “provides viewers with an unobstructed look at what it means to be an American without access to basic healthcare, a valuable perspective at a time when the battle over Obamacare has dominated the news cycle.”
