The award-winning indie thriller which has wowed festival audiences nationwide, will be the first theatrical and Digital VOD release, under a new partnership between Badger Game, LLC and the newly formed digital distribution company Stadium Media. The Badger Game will have exclusive theatrical engagements in key U.S. cities nationwide, in advance of the May 5th Digital VOD premiere on major digital platforms. A special edition Blu-ray™ and DVD release from Severin Films is planned for later this year.
The announcement was made by the film’s co-producer Thomas Zambeck and Stadium Media Founder/CEO Mitch Mallon. The acquisition deal was brokered by Susan Procko.
“We’re thrilled to be partnered with Stadium Media for the distribution of our film,” noted Zambeck. “As one of their first acquisitions, we hope this release signals a new era in how independent films can find their audience.”
“Stadium Media was founded with the goal of giving independent filmmakers a level playing field for the digital distribution of their product,” remarked Mallon. “The Badger Game is a smart and inventive thriller that will keep audiences guessing until the last fade-out.”
