ContentFilm Buys "WENDIGO"
(indieWIRE 12.03.01) -- ContentFilm, the new company from former October Films partner John Schmidt and producer Edward R. Pressman, announced the company's first film acquisition, Larry Fessenden's "Wendigo." ContentFilm will partner with Magnolia Pictures, ex-Shooting Gallery executive Eamonn Bowles' new distribution company, to release the movie. It will also be Magnolia's first effort, with plans to open the film in New York and Los Angeles in February of 2002. ContentFilm owns worldwide rights in all media to the picture, with Magnolia taking U.S. theatrical rights.
"We are thrilled that Wendigo' is our first acquisition," said Pressman and Schmidt in a prepared statement. "Larry Fessenden is a truly talented independent filmmaker with a unique vision, and that's what our acquisition strategy is based on -- identifying directors we want to continue to work with."
