First title under the pact will be Oscar-winning docu “Born Into Brothels” on Sept. 20, followed in the fourth quarter by high-profile indie titles “Murderball” and controversial “The Aristocrats.”

Agreement announced by Lions Gate Entertainment prexy Steve Beeks and ThinkFilm prexy-CEO Jeff Sackman brings Lions Gate’s total number of distributed theatrical films on DVD to about 30 per year.
