Oxford Film Festival congratulates “Mississippi Queen” for distribution deal with Cinetic Rights Management
Mississippi Queen’s recent deal for digital distribution through Cinetic Rights Management FilmBuff.
Williams recently took part in the “speed-pitch” panel at Oxford Film Festival in February where she had the chance to meet with Cinetic Rights Management representative Steve Beckman.
“The Oxford Film Fest is charming, charismatic and connected. A perfect combo for bringing a small film into major light,” Paige Williams said.
After screening the film in Oxford, Cinematical's Todd Gilchrist called it
“…a surprisingly intimate and thoughtful portrait of one woman's efforts to investigate and understand that intolerance, and her attempt to reconcile her lifestyle with loved ones who still haven't come to terms with the fact that it isn't merely a "choice.”
“The festival is proud to be able to continue a tradition of providing opportunities for filmmakers to connect with industry professionals such as Cinetic Rights Management,” OFF Executive Director Molly Fergusson said.
