Black Fawn Distribution has today announced a trio of film initiatives in support of this year’s National Canadian Film Day. For starters, the company will be hosting "A Night of Digital Screams," a live, drive-in style, triple bill being broadcast on Twitch this Wednesday, April 22nd, starting at 8:00 PM (EST).
The event will feature a free online broadcast of the phenomena films I’ll Take Your Dead, Let Her Out and Bed of the Dead while also including some special guest drop-ins and production stories being told in between the films.
For collectors of physical media, or those who might only have limited access to the internet, Black Fawn Distribution is also discounting all of their film titles in the company’s online store by 50% beginning the same day. The store-wide sale includes the company’s most recent releases Harpoon (review), I’ll Take Your Dead and The Ranger (review) with the sale being listed as open ended.
In addition, Black Fawn is currently offering all of their VOD rentals via their VOD website as 7-day rentals for only $2 each for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We’re so proud of our fellow Canadians for doing the right thing and staying inside right now, that we felt that putting together a few initiatives would help everyone out," states Black Fawn Distribution’s Operations Manager C.F. Benner. "Films are currently being consumed at record levels and it was important to us to have our Canadian titles available to everyone, regardless of where they live or their financial situation. The Twitch broadcast especially gives film fans a bit of a break while also allowing them to still support Canadian-made horror."
