XLrator Media and Blue Fox Entertainment partner up

We are excited to partner with the innovative and forward-thinking team at XLrator Media.  Together, we plan to utilize new platforms of distribution with talented filmmakers while bringing fresh creative visions to the film and television market,” said James Huntsman and Todd Slater of Blue Fox Entertainment.

XLrator Media and Blue Fox Entertainment announced a distribution agreement to jointly distribute 15 films a year across all North American platforms, including a number of co-acquisitions. In addition, Blue Fox Entertainment (BFE) will sell the international rights to these and other select XLrator Media films, starting at AFM this year. The deal was announced today by XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon and Blue Fox Entertainment co-founders James Huntsman and Todd Slater. The relationship between the two companies started earlier this year when XLrator Media acquired the North American distribution rights from BFE to the international horror festival hit The Windmill, which will be released in theaters October 28th and debuts on VOD and iTunes October 25th.

The first film under the new XLrator Media-BFE distribution agreement will be the holiday-themed thriller Good Tidings which is expected to be released on December 6th, followed in 2017 by the supernatural thrillers Dark Signal and A Demon Within. All of the films will be released on XLrator Media’s acclaimed “Macabre” genre label. BFE plans to bring films of all different genres to the partnership, including several high-profile documentaries, which will be distributed on XLrator Media’s “Lifeframe” documentary label and other releasing labels.

Our partnership with Blue Fox will allow us to expand our release schedule with highly curated films that will enhance our genre, action, multi-cultural and documentary content labels in both traditional and emerging distribution platforms. James, Todd and I all share the same enthusiasm for disrupting outdated business models that have crippled the independent film eco-system for both content creators and distributors,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.
