The film includes interviews with former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Clinton chief of staff John Podesta.

1091 Media has acquired North American and digital rights to the UFO documentary The Phenomenon, with a nationwide theatrical release set for June of next year, followed by a digital release in September.

The film takes an expansive looks at 70 years' worth of history behind proving the existence of UFOs, right up to the latest discoveries.

The Phenomenon features never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with key eyewitnesses, experts and officials. Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, President Clinton’s White House chief of staff John Podesta, former Deputy Undersecretary for Defense Intelligence Christopher Mellon, and former U.S. Energy Secretary and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, as well as Jacques Vallee, who served as a scientific consultant on Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, were all interviewed for the doc.

James Fox, the filmmaker behind Sci-Fi Channel's Out of the Blue and History's I Know What I Saw, directed The Phenomenon and co-wrote it with Marc Barasch. E.T. actor Peter Coyote narrates.

“I’m excited to have joined forces with 1091 and a brilliant team of collaborators on my latest feature-length documentary film, The Phenomenon," Fox said Wednesday in a statement. "Our team has assembled the most compelling testimony and evidence from around the world that will lead even the most ardent skeptics to the inescapable conclusion that we are not alone.”

Added Barasch: “This film explores not only the reality of UFOs, but their challenge to our preconceptions about reality, our collective life on this planet, and really, our place in the cosmos. We hope our film will have a provocative cultural impact, framing a new understanding, and catalyzing fresh ways of looking not only at The Phenomenon, but at ourselves and the ever-evolving future of humanity.”

Said Jim Martin, vp for 1091 Media, "We are thrilled to be partnering with James to bring his most stunning work to the widest audience possible."
