Comcast announced they have uploaded over 2,000 independent films into their On Demand library’s new Indie Film Club category. Heading off the indy film offerings is Edward Burns’ latest romantic comedy Nice Guy Johnny which will include some exclusive behind-the-scenes content. Burns’ other films, The Brothers McMullen and She’s The One, will also be available on demand.
Along with Burns’ films, titles from distributers Tribeca Film (Road, Movie, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle) and SnagFilms (The Throwaway War, Out in the Silence) are also now part of the content in Comcast’s Indie Film Club. Comcast currently distributes films from IFC, Sundance, Magnolia, National Lampoon, Brainstorm, Gravitas.
“This approach will have a long-term impact on the way specialized films are distributed,” said Edward Burns. “Now when someone asks, ‘where can I see your movie if I don’t live near an art house theater?’ I tell them, ‘anywhere you want.”
