ITN Distribution, Inc Acquisitions team gears into high level for the 2007 Marche du Film/Cannes

Dynamic independent film distribution company, ITN Distribution Inc. (ITN) today announced their slate of films for the 2007 Marche du Film/Cannes Film Festival. ITN will be conducting sales for territories worldwide in Riviera F-11.

The films are a diverse mix of high-concept features, shorts and documentaries in a wide variety of genres such as action, horror, thriller and comedy.
High profile films and talent include, Johnny 316 starring Vincent Gallo (The Brown Bunny) and newcomer Nina Brosh; That’s the Way of the World starring Harvey Keitel; Valley of Angels starring Danny Trejo (From Dusk to Dawn); The Last Request starring Danny Aiello (Lucky Number Slevin), Vinny Pastore (The Sopranos) and T.R. Knight (Grey’s Anatomy); City Teacher starring Frank Vincent (Casino) and controversial rapper, composer, actor Chuck D. (Public Enemy) and feature horror Rapturious directed by former Grammy-nominated Jerky Boy, Kamal Ahmed. 
 

Since its inception in 2001, ITN has been attending the Cannes market as well as AFM, MIFED and NATPE and has shaped a realistic approach to film distribution. ITN acquires and sells a diverse range of quality and award-winning independent films from around the world and has aggressively expanded its library to over 500 titles.  

According to President and CEO Stuart Alson, “I am really looking forward to Cannes and we expect business to be very brisk at our office. I have several meetings with key domestic and international buyers and distributors and have worked hard to earn their trust. The demand for our film library is exciting and inspiring. At ITN, we are committed to taking independent films to another level. The film distribution process is notoriously thorny and very often filmmakers do not make their money back as a result of confusing, hidden clauses in their contracts let alone get a wider audience for their films. At Cannes, we negotiate the best deal possible for our clients and have successfully licensed many films on a global scale.”  

To schedule an appointment during Cannes, please email Vice-President of Acquisitions, Renata Lorenc at renatafilm@aol.com or fax a request to (702) 361-6309. An ITN catalog and film trailers can be viewed at www.itndistribution.com.

ITN Distribution’s profile can also be viewed at www.cannesmarket.com or cinando.com. For all media and interview requests, please email Briege McGarrity at BMcGarrityPR@aol.com. Filmmakers are also invited to stop by the booth if the have a movie available for acquisitions. 

Through its special events division, ITN Distribution has assembled affordable packages for filmmakers to Cannes to experience the ten day film extravaganza. The travel package includes upscale accommodations during the Cannes Film Festival and Marche du Film, access to the industry-filled Independent Film Quarterly (IFQ) party, a personal guide and valuable seminars.

Distrbution for Movie" Turbulent Time".

We are SIYU CHEN Film Work Studio and had made a movie "Turbulent Time" which is registrated in Festival De Canne 2009. Currently we are looking for the distributor for world wide distribution. we are located in Los Angeles.

Contact: Erica Pu

The only movie I saw from

The only movie I saw from those is "Loyalty and respect" and I liked it. It's rather educational, when you see how a person is addicted.. and how helpful is a drug treatment it makes you think and at least it can try to stop you by presenting you such deadly stories.
