 As I've been promising you to keep you updated on the further developments of the distribution of Fade To Black, I thought it would be fitting to give you an update on the latest rumours that are spreading from an insider website.  The Australian based online site Dark Horizons published a news bit on Friday, informing us that Fade To Black has found two distributors.
Here I am, completely and utterly (but also nicely) exhausted. I'll try and give you my account of my last 30 hours or so. Being completely unaware of the fact that Fade To Black was scheduled to run at the Hamburg Film Fest (yes Nat's message was a surprise for me, too) I was under ongoing astonishment that this gem would be shown only - what? - 200 kilometres from me. The feeling lasted for the rest of Monday morning. Thank goodness there are mobile phones, the internet, ICEs and hotels. I made some quick decisions and found myself on a spontaneous trip to Hamburg right after I finished my work.

 Variety announced today that Oliver Parker's movie Fade To Black has found a distributor for Spain. Eurocine Films has bought all rights for that specific market. Under chairman Francisco Giro and acquisitions head Mark Holdom, Eurocine Films is stepping up acquisitions and has entered film production. The company is situated in Catalonia. This year it plans to distribute 40 titles theatrically, nearly 50 in DVD rental and around 160 in DVD sell-through.
