Arts Alliance Media (AAM), Europe’s leading digital cinema company, has announced that it has signed a deal with A Contracorriente Films to provide digital cinema content and distribution services for A Contracorriente’s theatrical releases in Spain. Under the agreement, AAM has also achieved a digital cinema first by distributing the film El Caso Farewell (L’affaire Farewell) via satellite to Yelmo cinema screens across Spain.

We look forward to helping them get their great content to more people efficiently and easily.” 
Eva Rekettyei, Programming Director of Yelmo Cines, said “At Yelmo we are delighted that the first satellite transmission of a feature was a success, and we hope to increase the number of films we receive in this way in the coming weeks.”
