Through this unusual distribution deal with New York based New Video and Zipline Entertainment, Bass Ackwards will be available for purchase and download in tens of millions of homes via major digital retailers, cable VOD and DVD on demand beginning Monday, February 1, 2010.
It combines a cutting-edge film with an innovative distribution vehicle - the prestigious Sundance Film Festival," said Thomas Woodrow, producer of Bass Ackwards.
The title, Bass Ackwards, not only describes an offbeat and entertaining film, but also the spirit of the filmmakers who are joining us on this innovative ride," said Steve Savage, co-president, New Video.
Bass Ackwards is one of eight American films selected by the Sundance Film Festival for inclusion in NEXT (), a new category that recognizes films for their innovative and original work in low-and-no-budget filmmaking.
The way Thomas has approached this alternative distribution idea for Bass Ackwards is no different.
Bass Ackwards was written and directed by Linas Phillips.
