Filmbuff, Cinetic Rights Management’s VOD distribution label, has acquired two films, David Bond’s “Erasing David” and Justin Molotnikov's "Crying with Laughter," which it will premiere day and date with the two titles’ premieres at this month’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin.

The two films will appear on the iTunes Movie Store and on Amazon VOD at the same time as they receive their North American premieres at the fest.

"David," a documentary about the surveillance state, is slated to play the fest March 12, while "Crying," a thriller, bows March 14.

Starting on Apr. 1, both titles also will be available on demand through Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon and Cox cable providers.
