Tartan Films and Arts Alliance Media Sign Exclusive Digital Cinema Agreement

Tartan Films Distribution (TFD), the U.K’s top independent distributor and Arts Alliance Media (AAM), Europe's leading provider of digital film distribution services, today announced an exclusive three year digital services and rights deal covering digital cinema, Video On Demand (VOD) and Electronic Sell Through (EST).

This agreement, a landmark for AAM, is the first time a content provider has signed up for the entire package of AAM's digital distribution services. Under the pact, AAM will provide digital cinema encoding, encryption, digital cinema prints and security keys as well as digital content storage, mobile and portable device streaming for all Tartan films and trailers. In addition, AAM will have exclusive rights to distribute TFD content via VOD, EST and portable device streaming and serve as the exclusive creator and supplier of all TFD digital assets.

The agreement covers upcoming Tartan releases including The Proposition, Brothers of the Head and Paul Verhoeven’s new film Black Book as well as classics from their catalogue such as The Seventh Seal, Man Bites Dog and Battle Royale.

Hamish McAlpine, Head of Tartan Films Distribution said “For Tartan, Arts Alliance Media is so far ahead of the game that this decision was a no-brainer. We also believe that operating through an exclusive digital distributor enables us to channel our marketing far more effectively than if it was to be spread thinly across several companies.”

"Arts Alliance Media is very excited about the opportunity to work with Tartan as their digital services provider," said Howard Kiedaisch, Chief Executive Officer, Arts Alliance Media. "Tartan's eclectic mix of edgy content is perfectly suited for digital distribution channels which will allow their films to reach a wider audience previously unable to find this content in traditional formats due to logistics and cost."
