Tugg adds Film Movement to list of partners

Deal boosts the number of arthouse films in Tugg library

Demand-it Web platform Tugg has added indie distributor Film Movement to its roster of industry partners, adding 15 arthouse pics from Film Movement to the company’s library.

As part of the deal, Film Movement will provide a selection of day-and-date releases, as well as films that never reached theaters, including American comedy “Prairie Love” and “Queen of Hearts,” the debut feature from Valerie Donzelli (“Declaration of War”).

“We are absolutely thrilled to work with Tugg to bring some of our films to audiences around the country who want to see them in a theatrical setting,” said Film Movement VP of acquisitions and distribution Rebeca Conget, who negotiated the deal.

The Tugg agreement offers a potentially larger rollout for Film Movement pics, which normally would reach only major U.S. markets.

For instance, Sundance winner “Teddy Bear” and Melanie Laurent starrer “The Day I Saw Your Heart” had only limited bows. German-Israeli docu “Hitler’s Children” will be available at community screenings simultaneous with the pic’s Nov. 16 debut in New York.

Tugg is an online platform that allows audiences to request that a film screen at their local theater. Tugg has agreements with the nation’s major theater chains, including Regal, AMC, Cinemark and Rave.
