IFC tries hand at day-date film releases
PARK CITY -- IFC Entertainment has announced a new video-on-demand service that will premiere select films at the same time they're released in theaters. The announcement came Monday morning at an IFC Films panel on collapsing release date windows, vertical integration and the new day-and-date distribution model. IFC's First Take, the new distribution outlet, will launch in March with Kevin Willmott's CSA: The Confederate States of America, a mockumentary about what might have happened if the South had won the Civil War, which played at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. IFC plans to offer at least 24 indie films annually. Among the six upcoming projects on First Take's slate are the Gotham Award-winning I Am a Sex Addict, directed by Caveh Zahedi; Aric Avelino's American Gun, which also played at Sundance 2004; and the recent Toronto International Film Festival entry Sorry, Haters, a psychological thriller starring Robin Wright Penn and directed by Jeff Stanzler.

Marking its launch as a theatrical distributor, Los Angeles-based indie producer and DVD distributor Dream Entertainment has acquired the worldwide rights to Dorota Kedzierzawska's Polish language film I Am. The film, which boasts cinematography by Arthur Reinhart (Children of Dune) and a score by Michael Nyman (The Piano) debuted at the New York and Toronto film festivals. The story of an orphaned boy searching for his identity won best score, editing, and cinematography at the 2005 Polish Film Festival, where director Kedzierzawska had previously won best director in 1999 for her debut film, Nic. Dream Entertainment has acquired another Toronto title, IFC Films' Sorry, Haters, starring Robin Wright Penn, and has also licensed the international rights for Ellie Parker, starring Naomi Watts.
