Corinth Films was founded in 1977 amidst the growing independent film revolution as a key source of theatrical and non-theatrical film programming. Over the years, the company has undergone numerous changes as industry mediums shifted, but one constant has always remained: our passion for film. Our roots are the acquiring and releasing of new arthouse films, and we endeavor to address the needs and desires of movie watchers who love a good story. Cinema has always been and always will be an effervescent form of art that has transcended through the ages – from the great Russian masters who steered the development of cinematic expression through the revolution and oppression of the Slavic states, to the latest Gala screening at Sundance. There are great films to be found in every corner of the world, and it is the distributor’s duty to find and deliver them to their most valuable patrons – you, the audience. Cinema is alive.
The purpose of our existence is to carry on the quest for great cinema – films with unforgettable stories and characters; films that move us to react and share in the predicaments, sorrow and triumphs of the characters. Our mission is to find high caliber content and showcase it to the best of our ability. We make our films available for theatrical engagements and subsequently move into non-theatrical and home video distribution to afford as many people as possible the opportunity to enjoy our movies on the screening medium of their choice. We pride ourselves on hard work and commitment to exceptional customer service, which is the key to accomplishing our mission of quality film distribution.
What we envision at Corinth Films, quite simply, is to increase the flow of quality films to film festivals, theaters, educational institutions, home video, and everything in between. We believe movies are essential of both leisure time and intellectual development, so we aim to keep our standards high in visual and audio quality which goes hand-in-hand with the powerful content of our pictures. To us, the most rewarding thing is a successful film engagement and an excited audience.
How We Do Business
Corinth Films is committed to competitively pricing film screening licenses and doing our best to accommodate last minute schedule changes in order to give our clients the best possible film booking experience. Pricing for our films in a theatrical/non-theatrical and film festival setting is determined according to conditions of the film engagement, including but not limited to admission charged, size/location of venue, size of audience, number of screenings, and exhibition format requested. Above all, we place the utmost importance on helping our clients and exhibitors to utilize our services to improve their ability to offer audiences the best film-watching experience possible.
