Factory 25 Acquires PAVILION by Tim Sutton at BAMcinemaFest and Oscilloscope Deal
FACTORY 25 FOR WORLD DISTRIBUTION AT BAMCINEMAFEST
FACTORY 25 ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT WITH OSCILLOSCOPE LABORATORIES
Brooklyn, NY (June, 26 2012) – Factory 25 announced today that it has acquired world rights to BAMcinemaFest, SXSW, and Munich Film Festival film PAVILION by Tim Sutton. Likened to films by Gus Van Sant and Pedro Costa, Sutton’s debut feature follows a laconic teenager (Max) who moves from an idyllic lakeside town in New York to his father’s home in arid suburban Arizona. With mesmerizing imagery of hot summer bike rides and cool lake-bound dives, Pavilion captures the ephemerality and reverie of youth and the fragility of adolescent friendships. A haunting score by the Sea and Cake’s Sam Prekop shadows the storyline, echoing its secrets and shouldering its mysteries. F25 will release the film theatrically in January, followed by a DVD release and non-theatrical screenings in the spring. Also in the spring, PAVILION will hit digital platforms courtesy of Oscilloscope Laboratories as part of an overall exclusive digital distribution partnership.
The 2-year partnership gives O-Scope sole distribution rights to the entire F25 catalog and upcoming releases across all digital platforms and marks the second such partnership for O-Scope, already the exclusive digital (and home video) distributor of the Milestone Films’ catalog. Upcoming F25 digital titles include The Color Wheel, Fake It So Real, Two Gates of Sleep, The Family Jams, and Shit Year.
