Water Bearer hoists Film Society imprint

Video distrib to give unsung films exposure

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has formed an alliance with specialized video distrib Water Bearer Films to put out two to four titles per quarter bearing the imprint “The Film Society Presents.”

Nonexclusive agreement will provide for the release on both DVD and VHS formats of critically lauded, previously screened Film Society works that have not received full domestic theatrical promotion.

“There are many films that pass through the Film Society — through the New York Film Festival, American Independent Visions, the Walter Reade Theater — that are fine films and certainly could have, if not a theatrical life, a life on video,” Film Society program director Richard Pena told Daily Variety.

Among Water Bearer’s foreign, classic, independent and gay cinema titles on video and DVD are Jean Cocteau’s “Les Parents Terrible,” Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “The Gospel According to St. Matthew” and Mike Leigh’s “Bleak Moments.”
