FilmRise has raised an additional $27 million led by Harlan Capital Partners LLC to finance the acquisition of film and TV titles for all distribution channels.
Variety reported a year ago that the Brooklyn-based distributor had raised acquisition financing of $25 million through Harlan Capital.
FilmRise’s recent theatrical releases include the drama “White Girl,” which opened at the beginning of September with the highest per screen average during its first weekend, and the true crime documentary “The Witness.” “White Girl” has taken in $176,000 at 16 locations in a month.
Other notable acquisitions include the horror-comedy “The Greasy Strangler” and the documentary “Harry & Snowman,” which opened on over 50 screens last weekend; Amy Berg’s “Janis: Little Girl Blue,” which was one of the top-grossing documentaries of last year; Emmy winner “Going Clear”; and the science fiction anime series “Robotech.”
Harlan Capital Partners has been the lead source of financing for FilmRise since 2015.
“FilmRise has grown incredibly over the past year with a wide array of acquisitions across all distribution channels, much in part to our wonderful partnership with Harlan Capital,” said FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher. “We are beyond thrilled to continue this fruitful relationship.”
FilmRise was founded by Danny Fisher, Jack Fisher and Alan Klingenstein in 2010 as Fisher Klingenstein Films. It has over 6,000 titles.
