Sundance Select acquires 'Convention'

Political doc to debut on Rainbow's VOD service May 12

Rainbow Media's VOD service Sundance Select has acquired rights to the political documentary "Convention."

Described as a behind-the-scenes look at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, the film was directed by AJ Schnack ("Kurt Cobain About a Son") in collaboration with an ensemble of filmmakers.

"Convention" will debut May 12 on VOD simultaneously with its limited theatrical release in Los Angeles and Denver. The doc was featured last year at the Los Angeles Film Festival and AFI Silverdocs.
