Orion Releasing will distribute “Fort Tilden,” last year’s SXSW grand jury prize winner for best narrative film, in the U.S. and Latin America theatrically and on VOD in August.

“Fort Tilden,” written and directed by Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, stars Bridey Elliott and Clare McNulty as two slacker Brooklynites experiencing mishap after mishap on a journey to the beach.

The film premiered a year ago at SXSW and later won the special jury prize for narrative feature at the Independent Film Festival of Boston.

“Fort Tilden” was produced by Mollye Asher and Geoff Mansfield. Exec producers are Ariana Ciri Bernstein and Zach Gerbarg.

Josh Braun from Submarine negotiated the deal with Orion on behalf of the filmmakers. Bliss and Rogers are repped by ICM Partners and Mosaic.
