Filmbuff to premiere SXSW pics on iTunes

Video-on-demand distributor nabs 'David,' 'Laughter'

Video-on-demand distrib Filmbuff has acquired two pics set to unspool at SXSW this month: David Bond’s “Erasing David,” a new docu about surveillance, and “Crying With Laughter,” a Scottish thriller from scribe-helmer Justin Molotnikov. The distrib will premiere the pics on iTunes and Amazon.com at the same times their films screen at the fest.

“David” will preem March 12 and “Laughter” will bow March 14. Starting April 1, both titles will be available on demand to Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon and Cox subscribers.

Bond, a U.K. native, films his own attempt to avoid two private investigators with “David.” Pic is produced by Ashley Jones.

Molotnikov’s pic follows a standup comic arrested for an assault he has no memory of committing. Film is produced by Claire Mundell, Alastair Clark and Rachel Robey.
