Following the successful premiere’s of Stacy Peralta’s new documentary Bones Brigade : An Autobiography, the director has announced overnight his desire to release the film publicly in October this year. Speaking to an energy drink website on the subject of distribution Peralta says:
“I’m very excited with the road we’re taking with this film. It looks like we are going to self-release theatrically and make a deal with a company called Topspin Media that is going to manage our entire presence on the web. This will include selling “Bones Brigade” directly from our website via download and DVD, as well as many other things. We will be doing the final on-line and sound mix in late June to have it finished July 1st. Our plan is to release sometime in early October.”
Put it on your Xmas present list.
The film had its UK premiere this week month at a screening at the Sheffield Doc Fest this Wednesday night with another screening about to run this weekend on Sunday.
