HOUSE OF FILM PARTNERS WITH TRIBECA FILM INSTITUTE

Tribeca Film Institute's Reframe Collection Offers Cutting Edge Distribution Solutions

LOS ANGELES- House of Film is excited to announce their recent partnership with the Tribeca Film Institute Reframe Collection.  This new undertaking will put select movies from House of Film's collection into the prodigious Tribeca Film Institute Reframe volume.

The Reframe program - funded by John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts - seeks to empower filmmakers through curating films on their site and facilitating fair and effective distribution for their films.

Tribeca Film Institute Reframe aims to assist filmmakers, distributors, archives, libraries and other media owners to digitize and sell their work in the US domestic marketplace, and to become a one- stop location for anyone seeking these films. In addition to bringing together works from independent and alternative media - much of it available to the public for the first time - Reframe aims to enrich the experience by offering professional insight and encouraging discussion.

Under a unique deal with Amazon’s CreateSpace, Tribeca Film Institute Reframe projects are placed in non-exclusive distribution through the Amazon storefront and Reframe website. Titles will have the option to also be sold via download or streaming through Amazon.

House of Film is a new company gaining success from timely acquisitions, innovative services, and tireless sales efforts. Based in Beverly Hills, the company is gaining a reputation for accomplishing the impossible. An early Tribeca Film Institute Reframe partner, House of Film has a catalog of films, linked by strength of content and quality. "At House of Film we are constantly searching for new, creative ways to distribute and monetize our films," says Ava B., president and founder of House of Film.

House of Film has been making headlines recently with Beautiful Darling earning the top spot for per-screen averages opening weekend, along with Delivered, Glenn the Flying Robot, The Lost Secret of Immortality and Martial Arts: Secrets of the Asian Masters all winning top prizes at film festivals in fast succession. House of Film has also added Moomins, the internationally beloved animation franchise, to their lineup.

House of Film is present at Berlinale, MIPTV, Cannes, MIPCOM, and the American Film Market. Since its launch House of Film has given market premieres to dozens of movies. House of Film also distributes a portfolio of more commercial titles under the Maison Noir brand.
