IFC Films is proud to announce “The Indie Theater Revival Project,” an initiative to support its theater partners as they reopen for audiences in the coming months. The company has put together 20 curated retrospective programs, featuring some 150 films spanning IFC Films’ 20-year history, and will make them available to cinemas across the US. No film rental will be due for these special engagements. A selection of the programs will also be presented at IFC Center, IFC Films’ cinema in New York City, when it reopens. Click here for the full lineup of all 20 programs.
Theaters can book any number of the retrospective programs, in part or in total, any time through the first month after a theater reopens. Theaters can sign up for the project and get more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Independent theaters across the country have been essential partners for us at IFC Films, and we would not be where we are today without their support,” the company announced in a statement. “We wanted to take the first step and let theaters know that we are committed to helping them reopen their doors by providing a selection of films to program while the new release landscape gets back to normal.”
The 20 retrospective programs available in “The Indie Theater Revival Project” include “Yes We Cannes!” (award-winners from the Cannes Film Festival, including 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS, 2 DAYS and THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY); “Discover Together” (a slate of family-friendly documentaries including CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS and PICK OF THE LITTER); portraits of the famous and infamous (from Joan Rivers to Elaine Stritch to Che Guevara and beyond); outrageous genre favorites (including THE BABADOOK, ANTICHRIST, and THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE); and IFC Films’ greatest hits.
