We have some good news to report on distribution for ROUGH CUT! Firstly, the film’s UK cinema release will now be in early October and will take place in between 10 and 15 multiplex cinemas in major cities across the country.Secondly, we have a distribution deal on the table from a UK distributor covering DVD, VOD, digital and TV for the UK. Finally, as a result of a meeting during our visit to Cannes in May, we have just received an offer from a distributor in the USA covering DVD, VOD, digital and TV worldwide (excluding the territories already covered of course). Although nothing is signed yet, these are all solid propositions which we are almost certainly going to go with - more details to follow as and when contracts are signed.
