Slowhand Cinema Releasing

Company known for indie sevice deals

B.O.: $2 million

Top pic: “Guadalupe,” $848,000

Exec suite: Marty Zeidman

Analysis: Slowhand is known for its indie service deals. In the past year, films from helmers including Michael Corrente (“Brooklyn Rules”) and Christopher Cain (“September Dawn”) have sent their titles through Slowhand’s machine. The upside is that filmmakers retain all their theatrical and ancillary pic rights, while Zeidman books and markets their product.

A former Miramax and Fine Line distrib exec, Zeidman has built his reputation on handling eclectic fare such as last year’s Hispanic religious epic “Guadalulpe.” Recently, Slowhand has tackled its most ambitious project yet, “September Dawn,” a Jon Voight Western about a group of Mormon extremists who massacred Utah settlers. Touting an $8 million marketing budget, “September” is the widest release in Slowhand’s three-year history with 857 playdates — an anomaly for Zeidman who typically promotes his niche slate through very grassroots means.

Among upcoming rollouts are Berlin winner “The Year My Parents Went on Vacation,” a City Lights pickup that’s being released via a service deal with Slowhand.

Up next:

“Holly,” November

“Strength and Honor,” November

The Bra Boys,” November

“The Year My Parents Went on Vacation,” December

“Everybody Wants to be Italian,” January
