Amazon is entering a multi-year licensing agreement with Music Box Films, a distributor of international, independent and documentary films.
The deal will make upcoming titles from Music Box Films available exclusively to Amazon Prime members following their theatrical release.
The initial films in agreement include Beloved Sisters (pictured), a New York Film Festival selection, and the Golden Globe-nominated Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, which will be available on the streaming subscription service beginning in late summer.
Founded in 2007, Music Box Films is owned and operated by the Southport Music Box Corporation, which also owns Chicago’s Music Box Theatre, which screens independent and foreign films. Past releases include the original Swedish film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, starting with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Terence Davies’ period romance The Deep Blue Sea, starring Rachel Weisz, and Philippe Falardeau’s Academy Award-nominated Monsieur Lazhar.
