The Independent Film Channel has acquired the films “Max,” “The Grey Zone” and “Lantana” as part of a 20-pic licensing deal with Lions Gate Films.
Pact includes video-on-demand rights for all titles, which will air on the channel’s VOD platform. In addition, 19 of the 20 pics will make their network TV premiere on the cabler.
Lions Gate deal comes on the heels of the IFC’s 38-pic licensing agreement with New Line Television that includes the films “Magnolia,” “American History X” and “Boogie Nights.”
Films in the Lions Gate package will begin airing this year. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Other titles in the package include “Bread and Roses,” “The Cat’s Meow” and “The Daytrippers.”
