Amazon, Bleecker Street Sign Streaming Distribution Pact

Newly launched indie film company Bleecker Street has locked up an important distribution partner, announcing Tuesday that it has entered into a multi-year content licensing agreement with Amazon Prime.

As part of the pact, Prime will be the exclusive subscription home for Bleecker’s theatrical releases — a slate that includes “Danny Collins” with Al Pacino, “I’ll See You in My Dreams” with Blythe Danner and “Pawn Sacrifice” with Tobey Maguire.

“As we build out our collection of films, it’s important to us to share the work of these amazing filmmakers with a broad viewing audience,” said Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street, in a statement. “We look forward to bringing Prime members an entertainment experience we’re sure they’ll love.”

In January, Bleecker Street entered into an output deal with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, with the company handling all marketing, sales and distribution services for the Blu-ray, DVD, electronic sell through and on-demand platforms of the company’s films in the U.S.

Karpen, the former co-CEO of Focus Features, formed the company in 2014, with backing from 5-hour Energy founder Manoj Bhargava.
