Distribution and sales companies Abramorama and Cargo Film & Releasing have inked a first-look deal that will see them collaborate on new documentary feature film releases.

The non-exclusive arrangement will allow the companies to provide worldwide full-service distribution options to content owners and filmmakers. Cargo and Abramorama are also looking to expand filmmakers’ and producers’ abilities to monetize their films across all revenue generating platforms.

“Cargo’s focused engagement with documentaries and their cross-platform global sales efforts are in line with Abramorama’s approach to maximizing revenue opportunities for filmmakers and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with David (Piperni) and the growing team at Cargo,” said Karol Martesko-Fenster, Abramorama EVP & CCO, in a statement.

The agreement does not include every film in each companies’ slate. However, the two have previously collaborated on films such as Brett Berns and Bob SarlesBang! The Bert Berns Story, John Scheinfeld’s Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary, Jill Campbell’s Mr. Chibbs (pictured), Raz Degan’s The Last Shaman, Leslie Iwerks’ Ella Brennan: Commanding The Table, Thomas Wirthensohn’s Homme Less, and Luke Meyer’s Breaking a Monster.
