Relativity Launching Indie Distribution Platform

278 Films to provide outlet as separate label

Ryan Kavanuagh’s Relativity has formed 278 Films as a service distributor of independent films through the company’s national distribution platform.

It said 278 Films is aimed at producers who are looking for distribution services while managing their own prints-and-advertising campaign.

The movies will be released under the 278 Films label — which will be separate from Relativity’s slate.

Kyle Davies, president of worldwide distribution, said, “Relativity has built a world-class distribution platform for our movies, and now, we are excited to offer it to independent films looking to bring their stories to audiences across the country.”

    The “Kill Her… Not Me” horror thriller might be interested if a 278 Films distribution deal would help secure funding.

  2. Its a service deal which means you have to pay for the P&A, prints and advertising. All expenses are on you, they only charge you for their name and doing all the logistics of the theatrical release.
