Film Movement’s buying pix

Shingle keeps busy with 'Long Life,' 'Carol's' releases

Gotham-based DVD distributor Film Movement has announced its latest clutch of acquisitions.

Shingle releases an indie pic each month on DVD as well as in theaters, libraries or alternative screening venues to make the films available to the widest possible audience. Most of the films have made the festival rounds, picking up prizes and noms.

Early 2004 will see the release of “Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity,” a Canadian screenplay winner at the Vancouver Intl. Film Festival, directed by Mina Shum and starring Sandra Oh.

Subsequent titles include Spanish pic “Carol’s Journey,” which picked up a Crystal Bear award in Berlin, and “Raja” from France and Morocco, a prize winner in Venice.

Slotted for an April release is Brazilian pic “Middle of the World.”

Shingle has not yet set a bow for latest acquisition, “Alexandra’s Project.” Directed by Rolf De Heer, pic was a Film Critics Circle of Australia screenplay winner.
