I have the AE blu and I forgot about that extra. I'm a little surprised at the treatment they're giving the release. I hope the sales on this turn out well enough to help Strickland's next project.

Tempting as a blind buy as I can't see this ever getting an Australian release.

Deadline reports that AMC Networks (Parent company of IFC Films) is in early talks to acquire Starz. Worth a mention; since that would include Anchor Bay.

I was going to make a joke about Criterion releasing Lords of Salem but then I remembered that Anchor Bay might have rights to Halloween. Would this actually bring about some sort of deal between Criterion and Anchor Bay/Starz? I'm unsure how these things work.

IFC has bought North American rights to Personal Shopper, the new Olivier Assayas film that's currently shooting in Paris.

There's no chance of Criterion releasing Corneliu Porumboiu's The Treasure, is there?

Probably not, since they passed on the better-received Police, Adjective. Plus, they're presumably still sitting on Beyond the Hills, in preparation of the fourth anniversary of its premiere or to pair it with the surely-by-now 21st canon 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days or who knows.

The fact that Police, Adjective came out on DVD through Kimstim/Zeitgeist rather than MPI leads me to think it was subject to a previously existing deal and was off-limits to Criterion. It was released well after IFC and Criterion began their relationship, but IFC acquired it about a month before the Criterion deal was announced, so they may have already worked out an arrangement with Kimstim for that particular title. That's just speculation on my part, though.

I'm inclined to think that Criterion won't release it but IFC picked up the documentary Weiner at Sundance which won the grand jury prize in the documentary category. Pretty strong reviews overall.

I don't see why they wouldn't release it necessarily - has IFC films had any high-profile documentary releases in the past? A google seems to suggest nothing especially notable.

Unrelatedly I see on their website that IFC acquired Dheepan - that's surely a future release, I can't see Criterion turning down a Palme d'Or winner.

IFC has had some Herzog docs that didn't get Criterion releases - Into the Abyss and Cave of Forgotten Dreams off the top of my head. They also had Wenders's Pin, which did get Criterionized.

Sundance Selects acquired Mia Hansen-Løve's Things to Come at the Berlin Film Festival. The film won the 'best director' prize, so it'd be nice to see it included in the collection.

Fingers crossed that this project get the Criterion treatment along with Dheepan, Tale of Tales, 45 Years, Beyond the Hills, and (the already confirmed) 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days.

All of Mia Hansen-Love's films have been well received and Criterion already passed on 2 of them. She's been getting the best reviews of her career for Things to Come..,so maybe.

Susanne Bier's The Night Manager miniseries has been getting raves out of Berlin. Not sure if that's potentially on the table. We got Carlos but Top of the Lake ended up being released by Warner Brothers.

IFC has acquired the rights to Kelly Reichardt's Certain Women. The film stars Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern. Played very well at Sundance (to the critics). I took at look at RT and it has a 100% score with an average rating of 8.5/10

I would assume it's pretty safe to speculate that this will be Criterion bound.

IFC already had the rights to Personal Shopper (Olivier Assayas) and today announced it has picked up the rights to the following Cannes competition tiles: Unknown Girl (Dardennes Brothers) Graduation (Cristian Mungiu) and From the Land of the Moon (Nicole Garcia)

IFC will be handling theatrical and presumably home video for Complete Unknown (Joshua Marston) on behalf of Amazon Studios. It will be interesting to see if this becomes a thing and they can wrangle some of those other tempting films Amazon has at Cannes. (or even Weiner Dog from Sundance would be nice) Amazon seems to be working with everyone and not exclusively with one theatrical distributor.

That was quick.

Amazon Studios is partnering with IFC Films to release Todd Solondz's Weiner Dog which made it's debut at Sundance.

I don't think that it has been mentioned that Ken Loach's I, Daniel Blake (this year's Palme d'Or winner at Cannes) was sold to Sundance Selects a few days ago.

Given the high number of films Sundance Selects took from the 'In Competition' lineup at Cannes this year (five), it'll be interesting to see how many of them make their way into the Criterion Collection. I'd say the Loach, Mungiu, Assayas, and Dardenne brothers' films are all locks to join the collection.

IFC acquires US rights to London Town. The story about The Clash.

Criterion must have passed on Tale of Tales. Shout Factory will be handling a Blu-ray release of the film.

Shout signed a deal with IFC to exclusively distribute genre pics under the "IFC Midnight" banner, so Tale of Tales wasn't going to happen.

Phantom page for Kelly Reichardt alludes to Criterion releasing Certain Women.

IFC has also distributed two titles on behalf of Amazon. The poorly reviewed Complete Unknown is getting a standard dvd/blu release via Universal...but Weiner Dog has some weird DVD-R/BD-R release directly from Amazon. Smells like a placeholder until an eventual Criterion. Hopefully they do another Q+A like they did for Life During Wartime.

Brady Corbet's directorial debut Childhood of a Leader also has no dvd/blu solicited from anyone...might be worth keeping an eye on that title.

I would put money on Weiner-Dog never joining the collection, but we have seen worse films.

I only just now realized Tale of Tales and Arabian Nights were two different projects
