FilmRise & Electric Entertainment Form International Distribution Pact


FilmRise has inked an international distribution deal with Electric Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based production, distribution and post-production company.

Per the deal, Electric Entertainment will handle international distribution for all of FilmRise’s newly acquired films and libraries, as well as its new feature catalog. The partnership between the two companies has launched following FilmRise’s acquisition of Change in the Air, a feature starring The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan and Aidan Quinn; and Wildland, a documentary about the brave young men and women who have helped fight wildfires.

FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher said: “We are excited to enter this partnership with Electric Entertainment. Their vast worldwide distribution channels will enable our immense library of titles to reach a wide array of international audiences.”

Dean Devlin, CEO of Electric Entertainment, added: “This is an exciting time for TV series and films to be viewed around the world via many different streaming and digital platforms. FilmRise has a tremendous amount of content within their library, which we are eager to offer to our international partners.”
