BreakThru Films will shortly be launching a new channel online using Narrowstep, the TV on the Internet Company. The new channel is scheduled to launch June 11, 2007 and will coincide with the opening of Annecy Animation Festival, where BreakThru Films’ recently Rose D’or decorated film ‘Peter and the Wolf’ is in competition.
“BreakThru Films provides stellar content,” said David McCourt, CEO of Narrowstep in a prepared statement. “This is also a huge victory for independent filmmakers—now filmmakers don’t have to rely on the big production houses to reach audiences.”
Carlota Zapata, Vice President of Breakthru Films, added, “Our extremely loyal customers often have to go to great lengths to buy our films through the plethora of middlemen, so we are sure that taking this step and setting up the channel with Narrowstep will breakthrough the middle men log jam and allow us to connect directly to our customers. This way we can distribute our films directly across the globe without compromising the independence and quality we are dedicated to providing to our viewers.”
