SIFF 2017: Highlights of film festival’s first week
January 11, 2018

Dark Star Pictures is launching as an independent film distribution venture at the American Film Market, with Thomas Middleditch’s comedy “Entanglement” as its first release.

Founded by Breaking Glass Pictures executive Michael Repsch, Dark Star Pictures will be looking to solidify a full 2018 release slate with finished films at AFM.

“Dark Star Pictures is committed to bringing diversified and hyper-targeted content to a millennial-focused audience in the digital age,” Repsch said. “Our goal is to bring auteur-driven [and] unique voices to North American audiences, films that challenge viewers while keeping them wanting more and, most importantly, starting conversations.”

“Entanglement” — slated for Feb. 9 — will be Dark Star’s first nationwide theatrical, VOD, and digital release. The film premiered at the 2017 Seattle International Film Festival. Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) plays a man recovering from a suicide attempt who accidentally falls in love with a woman, portrayed by Jess Weixler (AMCs “The Son”).
