Destroying the barriers between grindhouse and art-house.
Drafthouse Films, the film distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is a curated brand of provocative, visionary and artfully unusual films new and old from around the world. Following the earnestly simple motto of “sharing the films we love with widest audience possible,” Drafthouse Films debuted in 2010 with the theatrical release of the controversial black comedy Four Lions which was named of Time Magazine’s “Top 10 Films Of The Year.”
The film roster includes the acclaimed Best Foreign Language Oscar® nomiee BULLHEAD, twisted dark comedy and SXSW '13 Midnighter Audience Award winner CHEAP THRILLS, critically acclaimed and chilling Werner Herzog and Errol Morris produced documentary THE ACT OF KILLING, the internationally celebrated Danish comedy Klown (currently slated for a Warner Bros/Todd Phillips produced US remake), the recently unearthed wreck-wave of ‘80s TaeKwonDo actioner Miami Connection, the Australian landmark thriller WAKE IN FRIGHT, fearless cinematic surrealist Quentin Dupieux's Sundance 2012 comedy WRONG, the better-than-fiction rockumentary A BAND CALLED DEATH and together with producing partners Magnolia Pictures and Timpson Films, the nutzoid anthology horror film THE ABCs OF DEATH.
Drafthouse Films distributes films theatrically, through home video, VOD and direct-to-fan platforms integrating into the ever-growing Alamo Drafthouse entertainment lifestyle brand, which along with the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas includes: Mondo, the collectible art boutique; Fantastic Fest, the largest international genre film festival in the US; and the pop culture website Badass Digest.
“Too often in the industry I hear people say, ‘Oh, yeah, we bought that, it’s a piece of crap, but it’ll make money.’ But those are words we’re never going to utter because what we’re trying to do is build up credibility in our brand. We make very few compromises in programming, and we want to do the same on the distribution side.” –CEO Tim League
