The More2Screen team travelled to Midway, Utah, last week to attend Art House Convergence, the United States’ largest annual gathering of art house cinema and festival professionals, service providers and suppliers.
More2Screen was delighted to act as one of the Distributor sponsors for Art House Convergence for the second year running and the team was excited to return and learn more about the art house community. On the first day, the team delivered a special presentation, which offered insight into the recent art house-focused concert release Mumford & Sons Live From South Africa: Dust and Thunder and launched our new theatre production The Crucible from The Old Vic. This five-star revival is an award winning classic American drama from Arthur Miller starring Olivier-nominated Richard Armitage and will be screening in US cinemas for the first time this March.
The team also presented two Encore releases for 2017, the Elliott Smith documentary Heaven Adores You, which is now available during the 20th anniversary of the release of Either/Or, Smith’s most beloved album; and the smash-hit exhibition film from The British Museum, Vikings: Life and Legend, which was previously released worldwide in 2014.
On day two, More2Screen participated in the ‘Meet the Distributors’ showcase, which was an excellent opportunity to catch up with existing partners and talk through our special event catalogue with new exhibitors. In 2016, More2Screen’s screenings in the United States have more than doubled to over 300 events and the team aims to continue that trend, offering event cinema content of the highest quality to US art houses throughout 2017.
