Celebrating its 15th year in 2017, Film Movement is a North American distributor of award-winning independent and foreign films based in New York City.

Film Movement has released more than 250 feature films and shorts culled from prestigious film festivals worldwide, including its first Academy Award-nominated film, Naji Abu Nowar’s Theeb. Having grown from a DVD-of-the-month club, Film Movement’s theatrical distribution strategy has evolved to include American independent films, documentaries, and foreign art house titles. Its catalog includes titles by directors such as Hirokazu Kore-eda, Maren Ade, Jessica Hausner, Andrei Konchalovsky, Andrzej Wajda, Diane Kurys, Ciro Guerra and Melanie Laurent.[1]

In 2015, Film Movement launched its reissue label Film Movement Classics, featuring new restorations released theatrically as well as on Blu-ray and DVD, including films by such noted directors as Eric Rohmer, Peter Greenaway, Bille August, Marleen Gorris, Takeshi Kitano, Arturo Ripstein, and Ettore Scola.[2]
