Kino Lorber has signed an agreement to distribute selected titles from Adopt Films, a theatrical distributor of docs and world cinema titles, on home media and digital platforms.

The deal is designed to cover packaged media (Blu-Ray and DVD), all digital markets and educational rights, and kicks off with the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s Berlin award-winner Caesar Must Die (pictured above).

Richard Lorber, president and CEO of Kino Lorber, said: “We are honored to have been ‘adopted’ by Tim and Jeff to handle their outstanding line up of award winning festival darlings that have also scored impressive box office results – a rare achievement.

“Adopt Films and Kino Lorber share a similar creative DNA and we will give Adopt’s packaged media and digital releases the same loving attention as our own natural born.”

Adopt Films co-founder and president Tim Gradysays added: “I’m a great admirer of the DVD and VoD platform that Richard and Don Krim have developed and honed at Kino Lorber and, of course, their direct-to-consumer cinephile catalog is the best in the business. We look forward to an enduring and successful relationship.”
