Gotham Entertainment Group, the indie film and TV rep formed by two ex-Miramax staffers in the spring, has been tapped by Miramax off-shoot Shining Excalibur to send Larry Clark’s “Kids” to college.

Gotham will distribute the film to college campuses beginning Oct. 15, according to Eamonn Bowles, Shining Excalibur’s chief operating officer. Shining Excalibur was formed by Miramax co-chairmen Harvey and Bob Weinstein solely to release the controversial “Kids.”

Campus screenings of “Kids” will be accompanied by a study guide program highlighting issues raised in the film.

Gotham, founded by Joel Roodman and Patrick McDarrah, has a first-look deal with Miramax. Bowles said the Gotham execs, having worked with the Weinsteins, “have the experience to ensure the film and its message reach as wide an audience as possible in college communities.”
