Cannes, France (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Vision Films, a worldwide distributor of feature films, documentaries and music programming, opened its doors in North America as a DVD and VOD label and is providing content directly to the major cable service providers and digital platforms such as Comcast, DIRECTV, Dish, AT&T, iTunes and Amazon as well as retailers such as RedBox, Walmart, Best Buy and Target. They come to MIPTV wearing their acquisitions hat.
Most recently in the USA and Canada, Vision Films released HAMLET & HUTCH, a heart-warming family drama starring Burt Reynolds as Hutch. Upcoming feature film releases include the recently acquired SHIRIN IN LOVE, a romantic comedy starring Nazanin Boniadi (Scandal) as Shirin, a quirky Iranian-American young woman who goes against tradition to follow her heart; BLINDER, an action drama starring Josh Helman (X-Men, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Rose McIver (The Lovely Bones) in which an ex-footballer embroiled in a scandal returns home to clear his name and reignite an old flame; and MANTERVENTION, a college comedy starring Travis Van Winkle (Transformers), Chloe Bridges (The Carrie Diaries) and Mario Van Peebles about the process of getting over the ex, by using the “man-formula: #ontothenext.”
When asked about the future of the Vision Films’ DVD and VOD label Lise Romanoff, Managing Director/CEO of Vision Films, said, “Vision Films has an eye towards acquiring top-notch independent feature films and documentaries that entertain, inspire, and inform audiences. The themes that work for us are people doing good things for others, music and pop culture.”
Adding to Vision’s lineup of “documentaries that matter,” Vision picked up COMEDY WARRIORS, where Zach Galifianakis, Lewis Black and Bob Saget help disabled soldiers heal through humor by teaching them stand-up comedy, and OPERATION ROCK THE TROUPS, where The JC Allstars team with hot models and make it their mission to travel the globe to entertain the troops. On their journey they realize that the real success isn’t winning an Emmy or Grammy - it’s the magical feeling of changing people's lives with music. Vision has also acquired FINDING HAPPINESS, a spiritual journey starring Elisabeth Röhm (American Hustle); FEMME: WOMEN HEALING THE WORLD, a film that explores how the feminine spirit can help save our planet starring Sharon Stone and Marianne Williamson; DIVORCE: A JOURNEY THROUGH THE KIDS’ EYES; and FIGHT LIKE A GIRL featuring Maureen “The Real Million Dollar Baby” Shea and Laila Ali helping women overcome adversity during their training.
In the music and pop culture vein, SUNSET STRIP takes the viewer to the Strip from its origins in the 1920’s through today’s resurgence featuring Slash, Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke, Dan Aykroyd, Keanu Reeves, Ozzy Osbourne, Hugh Hefner, and music from Jane’s Addiction, Smashing Pumpkins, and more.
