Phase 4 acquires Hugh Hefner doc

Brigitte Berman film is planned for late spring release

Phase 4 Films has acquired all U.S. rights, as well as DVD, VOD, pay-per-view and digital rights in Canada, to Brigitte Berman's feature documentary "Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel."

A theatrical release of the film, which played the Toronto International Film Festival, is planned for late spring.

Berman won an Oscar for best documentary feature in 1987 for "Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got."

The 124-minute theatrical version of the doc was produced by Metaphor Films, and producers are Victor Solnicki, Berman and Peter Raymont. Phase 4 Films acquired the Canadian DVD, VOD, pay-per-view and digital rights from Robin Smith's KinoSmith Inc.

The deal to acquire the film was negotiated by the Cinetic Media's Debra Fisher and Phase 4's Larry Greenberg.
