FilmRise Announces Content Media as International Sales Arm

Fast-growing film and television distributor FilmRise has today announced that Content Media Corporation will serve as its exclusive international sales arm. The global entertainment media company will handle all overseas sales for FilmRise.

In October 2015, FilmRise announced that it had raised over $25 million to finance the acquisition and licensing of film and TV titles for all distribution channels. FilmRise has recently acquired the worldwide distribution rights to high profile titles including: Sean Brosnan's SXSW revenge thriller, "My Father Die"; the heartwarming horse jumping documentary "Harry & Snowman"; Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Jason Cohen's "Silicon Cowboys"; the acclaimed Sundance documentary, "The Bad Kids"; and indie drama "Five Nights in Maine," starring Oscar®-winner Dianne Wiest, David Oyelowo, and Oscar®-nominee Rosie Perez.

The recent acquisitions join FilmRise's growing film catalog, which currently boasts over 6,000 titles in a wide range of genres, most notably HBO's multiple Emmy®-winning "Going Clear"; the box office success "Janis: Little Girl Blue"; and most recently, the Star Wars documentary, "Elstree 1976." Its television titles include hit series such as Showtime's Emmy®-winning "Years of Living Dangerously," and the longest running true crime show on television, "Forensic Files."

As the company continues to grow, it has named Content Media Corporation as its exclusive international sales arm to handle all sales efforts outside of North America.

"We are delighted to announce Content Media as our exclusive international sales arm," said Danny Fisher, CEO of FilmRise. "We are confident that our alignment with the leading sales team at Content will help build upon our successes on a global scale, and look forward to our films finding homes overseas."

"We have enjoyed a terrific and growing relationship with FilmRise, and are thrilled that FilmRise has selected Content Media to handle its international sales efforts," said John Schmidt, CEO of Content Media Corporation. "We look forward to helping the distributor capitalize on opportunities in the international market."
