Intercon loves ‘Girl Next Door’

Distrib picks up '99 Slamdance Fest docu on porn star

Christine Fugate’s 1999 Slamdance Film Fest docu, “The Girl Next Door,” has found a domestic distributor in indie shingle Intercon Pictures.

Blackwatch Releasing has stepped up to the plate to handle international distribution.

Produced by Adam Berns and Eren McGinnis, “Girl” played at the Santa Barbara Film Fest, the Florida Film Fest, the USA Film Fest, the Atlantic Film Fest, the Hot Springs Documentary Film Fest, the Stockholm International Film Fest and the Oldenberg International Film Fest.

Pic documents two years in the life of porn star Stacy Valentine, graphically relating her journey from life as a Tulsa, Okla., housewife to one of the porn biz’s most renowned stars.

Fugate’s earlier “Mother Love” and “Tobacco Blues” were broadcast on PBS.

Fugate’s first docu, “Fighting For Our Lives,” explores the efforts of Korean women to survive the international marketplace of Waikiki, Hawaii.

In 1991, Fugate formed Cafe Sisters Prods. with Eren McGinnis. The company’s “The Southern Sex,” a playful examination of the Southern Belle myth, won the director’s choice award at the Atlantic Film Fest, among other kudos.

Intercon Pics has distributed such pics as “Surrender Dorothy” and “Boondock Saints.”
