GRAVITAS VENTURES ACQUIRES DAVE BOYLE'S

INDEPENDENT SPIRT AWARD NOMINATED THRILLER

'MAN FROM RENO'

 

Independent Spirit Award Nominee and Los Angeles Film Festival Award Winner

"Man From Reno" opens in theaters March 27, 2015.

El Segundo, CA (February 19, 2015) - Nolan Gallagher, Founder and CEO of Gravitas Ventures, has announced the acquisition of North American rights to  filmmaker Dave Boyle's atmospheric thriller MAN FROM RENO which has been nominated for the "John Cassavetes" prize at this year's Independent Spirit Awards (to be held February 21

st at 2pm PT / 5pm ET). 

 

Commenting on his company's acquisition of the film Mr. Gallagher said, "We are honored to continue our collaboration with Dave Boyle on his award winning Man from Reno. His stylish and assured filmmaking have gained a considerable audience and we are excited to help new fans discover this film."

 

MAN FROM RENO is already a multi-award winning film, having scored accolades and trophies from The Los Angeles Film Festival 2014 (Winner of "Best Dramatic Feature"), the San Diego Asian Film Festival 2014 (Winner of the "Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature") and the Dallas Asian Film Festival 2014 (Winner of the "Jury Award for Best Asian American Narrative Feature").  The film will make a limited theatrical bow in New York City and Los Angeles on March 27th before expanding on April 10th, 2014.  The cross-platform cable/satellite/telco and internet VOD and EST distribution is planned for summer 2015.

 

The wonderfully evocative film unfolds like a deliciously prepared riddle with a story that involves the intersection of three unlikely characters:  an aging but still dogged sheriff of a small farming town on the outskirts of San Francisco, a reclusive yet popular writer who harbors a deep secret that would shock her fans and a mysterious drifter -- the eponymous Man from Reno.  Gravitas is excited to bring MAN FROM RENO to audiences everywhere in North America.

 

Director and Co-Writer, Dave Boyle, whose previous three films have all be distributed by Gravitas Ventures, remarked of his new distribution agreement that "I'm thrilled to be working with my old friends at Gravitas to make sure mystery fans everywhere get their shot at catching the MAN FROM RENO.  I'm proud of the work of the entire filmmaking team, and I can't wait for more people to see it!"

 

The deal for MAN FROM RENO was negotiated by Chad Miller, Vice President of Filmmaker Relations and Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures.
