Raven Banner Entertainment is moving beyond genre horror pics to launch a new distribution label, Northern Banner.
The new label, to release international and Canadian pictures with theatrical and multi-platform VOD potential, has grabbed the Canadian rights to Sean Garrity's Borealis, written by and starring Jonas Chernick.
The indie dramedy is currently in pre-production with Buffalo Gal Pictures and Chernick's Banana-Moon Sky Films.
By launching Northern Banner, Raven Banner will use specialty film releases to broaden its reach in the Canadian distribution market. Northern Banner will also release Iceland's Life In A Fishbowl, which had its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
