Dogwoof to open Gotham office

U.K. docu distrib plans to expand to L.A.

LONDON — U.K. indie documentary distributor Dogwoof is spreading its tentacles to the other side of the pond and setting up shop in Gotham.

Following on from the distrib’s world preem of docu “Town of Runners” last week at the Tribeca Film Festival, Dogwoof is launching Dogwoof U.S.A. with an office in Manhattan, New York. Distrib plans to also expand to L.A. in the near future.

The move comes after Dogwoof made a move into the international sales arena last year: Dogwoof Global was established in 2011 as a consultancy to assist docu filmmakers and help them promote and sell their film rights globally, in addition to a guaranteed U.K. distribution deal.

Titles such as “Girl Model,” which was shopped at Toronto last year, and “Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present” are two titles that are being sold under Dogwoof Global.

“Establishing an office in New York is a natural step for Dogwoof as we look to build our documentary brand globally,” said Andy Whittaker, founder of Dogwoof. “And we’ve been delighted with the support of the U.S.A.-based filmmakers and partners since they heard we were coming across the pond.”

Dogwoof was founded in Blighty in 2004 and during its tenure it has released a raft of global indie pics in the U.K. marketplace, including “Food, Inc.,” “Burma VJ,” “The Age of Stupid,” “Restrepo,” “Gasland,” “Tabloid” and “Dreams of a Life.”

The distrib acquires all rights for exploitation across all platforms and is known for its intelligence in exploiting social media platforms and the digital arena to market and distribute its pics.

The distrib recently signed a deal with streaming service Netflix in the U.K.
