Indie P&A is focus of B.D. Fox plan


More AFM news

B.D. Fox Independent, which provides marketing and distribution services to independent filmmakers, is looking to acquire three to four completed films at the AFM.

With private-equity investments in hand, it plans to offer P&A funds for each picture in the $2 million-$10 million range.

In partnership with distribution-consulting firm Bossa Nova Prods., Fox also will represent the DVD, VOD, cable and ancillary media rights.

"The types of films we are looking to acquire have to be strong enough to compete in a limited, platform theatrical release, which sets the stage for DVD and ancillary markets," Malibu-based Fox said. "With so few remaining outlets in the world of indie and specialty film releasing, we believe it's the perfect time to provide an alternative domestic-distribution platform for producers. Being strictly fee-based, with no added costs or overhead, we can guarantee a better return on investment, putting more money into the marketing and distribution process."
