IFC inks for Miramax pix

Channel also announces renewal of agreement with Sony Classics

Cable’s Independent Film Channel (IFC) has inked an agreement with Buena Vista TV to secure a post-premium cable licensing window for 17 Miramax titles from 1995 to ’97, including “Trainspotting,” “Sling Blade,” Woody Allen’s “Everyone Says I Love You” and “Mighty Aphrodite,” “Marvin’s Room,” “Albino Alligator” and “A Month By the Lake.”

All of the films are first running on Starz! and Encore prior to going to IFC. The acquisition windows for IFC vary from 12 months to 18 months, kicking in between late 1998 and early 1999.

IFC also announced Friday a renewal of its output agreement with Sony Pictures Classics that secures for the network three-year licenses on all theatrical titles released by the distribution company between January 1997 and Dec. 31, 1999.

That extension expands IFC’s inventory of indie features, including “In the Company of Men,” “The Myth of Fingerprints” (starring Julianne Moore and Noah Wyle) and “Dream With the Fishes,” featuring David Arquette.
