Bigfoot Entertainment Breaks into Distribution with New Venture: Bigfoot Ascendant

LOS ANGELES, November 1, 2010 -- Bigfoot Entertainment, Inc. has opened the doors on its latest venture, Bigfoot Ascendant Distribution, LLC, its theatrical and home entertainment distribution division and foreign sales arm.

The new branch of Bigfoot, an international entertainment company, is currently looking to acquire feature films to complement its current roster, which includes fast-paced action film "Lord of War" (Nicolas Cage, Ethan Hawk), romantic period drama "Ask the Dust" (Colin Farrell, Salma Hayek) and quirky crime thriller "Lucky Number Slevin" (Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman) among others. Initial plans are to release four to six films per year under the Bigfoot Ascendant label.

"Our goal is to be producer-friendly," said Kacy Andrews, CEO of Bigfoot Entertainment and Bigfoot Ascendant. "As a company producing independent films for the global marketplace, we know what producers want because we've been in their shoes. We aren't looking to compete with the big studio distributers; we're simply filling the void of mid-level opportunities that we've seen while on the other side of the fence."

Bigfoot Ascendant offers services including:

  • Theatrical distribution - U.S.
  • Home Video distribution - U.S.
  • Internet streaming - Video on Demand (VOD)
  • Foreign sales representation
  • Domestic TV sales representation

The company is accepting submissions of completed, feature-length, English language films to be considered for domestic distribution. For more information, please visit: http://www.bigfootascendant.com

Bigfoot Entertainment executives will be available at the American Film Market in Santa Monica, Calif., Nov. 3-10, 2010 for interviews and press briefings as well as business meetings. To book an appointment at the show, please contact Racheal Caswell at Wonacott Communications: rcaswell@wonacottpr.com.
