BayView Entertainment and Summer Hill Films Enter into a North American Output Deal
By: Bayview Entertainment LLC
Launched in December of 2007 for the purpose of financing independent film production, Summer Hill Films was responsible for the release of numerous acclaimed titles into the theatrical, home video and streaming marketplace. The output deal with Bayview will be focused on both streaming and physical media, with the first titles expected to begin arriving in July 2023. Upcoming films will include the family drama "Jack and the Treehouse," the mystery "Devil's Lake," and the crime drama "Black Birds in a Storm."
"This agreement adds more strength to our current catalog offerings by adding over 200 new films," says Peter Castro, BayView's VP of Acquisitions and Business Development. "Summer Hill's titles (both New Releases and Catalog) will be a crucial part of BayView's release strategy for the foreseeable future. We are honored to welcome both Ted and Summer Hill Films to the Bayview family and dedicated and excited to make Summer Hill's titles successful within the expanding BayView catalog."
Summer Hill's CEO Ted Chalmers adds, "With the industry undergoing shifts in viewing habits on an almost weekly basis, I feel it is important to have our titles in the hands of an independent distributor who can give them the maximum exposure. I'm more than pleased that Bayview will be adding our titles to their extensive offerings."
Earlier this year, BayView announced it had acquired Passion River Films, UK-based genre label VIPCO, and Mutiny Pictures. Bayview is also responsible for uncovering the 2023 sensation "Skinamarink,"
