Last month, the doc was picked up as the inaugural release for a new, as-yet-unnamed distribution label headed by former Radius-TWC founders and co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego, as well as Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League.
Where to Invade Next finds the Bowling for Columbine filmmaker touring Europe to understand the region’s approaches to healthcare, post-secondary education and the prison system.
Among the 124 feature-length docs that have been submitted for Oscar consideration, the film is slated to hit theaters in Los Angeles and New York on December 23, followed by a nationwide release on January 15.
Since bowing in Toronto, the doc has screened at the New York Film Festival and the Hamptons International Film Festival, where it picked up the audience award. The film will screen at the Chicago Film Festival on Wednesday (October 28), and will also close the Philadelphia Film Festival on October 30.
“Where to Invade Next is Michael Moore’s most dangerous and subversive film yet. It’s the perfect crowd-pleaser for what’s shaping up to be a historic and exciting holiday season at the movies,” said Quinn, Janego and League in a joint statement.
