British Indie Distributor Dogwoof Links With Google Play
LONDON -- British indie distributor Dogwoof has linked with the Google Play platform in the U.K. to carry a selection of titles from the distributor on the platform, including Joshua Oppenheimer's BAFTA-winning, Oscar-nominated documentary The Act of Killing.
The partnership will kick off Friday this week in the U.K. with the release of A Story of Children and Film by Mark Cousins, which is getting a day-and-date theatrical and multiple-platform digital release.
Cousins's film uses excerpts from 53 films across 25 nations to investigate the various ways childhood has been depicted in film.
Other titles available starting Friday include BAFTA-nominated killer-whale documentary Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45 and Muscle Shoals by Greg "Freddy" Camalier, on the little southern U.S. town that produced some of the most recognizable musical hits.
Dogwoof founder Andy Whittaker said, "We're thrilled to be working with the team at Google, and look forward to an exciting, ongoing relationship."
The titles will be available via Google Play in Ireland a week after the U.K. rollout.
Teaming with Google is the latest move from Dogwoof into new digital platforms.
