Provides Post-Cannes Update

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amcomri Entertainment Inc. (“Amcomri” or the “Company”) (NEO: AMEN) (Frankfurt: 25YO) (OTC: AMNNF), a global producer and distributor of independent movies, TV series and documentaries, provided today a corporate update following its second quarter as a publicly traded company.

During the second quarter of 2022, Amcomri attended the world’s largest film market, Marché du Film—Cannes Film Festival; acquired the assets of Flame Media, a TV distribution and production company; strengthened its board of directors with the appointment of seasoned HR professional, Michelle Sangster; and listed on the OTC Stock Exchange in the U.S. under the ticker AMNNF.

Bringing its largest slate of home productions and library catalogue to the Marché du Film – Cannes Film Festival to date proved to be the highlight of the quarter. During two weeks at the world-renowned film festival and marketplace, the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, achieved the following milestones:

  • 101 Films International secured the worldwide distribution rights to Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist.

  • Amcomri Productions, 101 Films International and Hollywood Classics showcased their extensive catalogues, highlighted by titles such as Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist, The Gates, A Home for the Holidays, Christmas at the Holly Day Inn, and Dark Asset.

  • Amcomri Productions entered into a multi-picture production deal with Studio Atlantic, becoming an official financing partner for the Irish-based production company’s upcoming release slate. 101 Films International acquired the global distribution rights to the slate.

  • Amcomri Productions and 101 Films International, alongside Head Gear Films, announced the production of Diabolic, the latest Daniel J Phillips film and the first feature in a three-picture slate with SunJive Studios, Monster Pictures and Pictures in Paradise. Diabolic is financed by Amcomri Productions and Sunjive Studios with global distribution handled by 101 Films International.

  • 101 Films secured the pre-buy acquisition of Blood for Dust (2022) starring Kit Harrington, which begins shooting in August 2022, with release in the UK in 2023/24. The deal was agreed between 101 Films and Highland. 101 Films also made the post-production acquisition of Fear the Night (2022) starring Maggie Q, to be released in the UK in Q1 2023.

“We went to Cannes brimming with excitement based on our most expansive new release slate ever and extensive film libraries,” said Robert Price, CEO of Amcomri. “The response from partners was exceptionally strong and validates our growth strategy.”

Another key achievement in the second quarter was the acquisition of the assets of Flame Media, a UK and Australian based global distributor of factual and documentary TV content, for total consideration of approximately C$3.0 million. This latest deal boosted Amcomri’s TV content library to over 4,500 hours of TV programming.

“Our fast start as a public company continued in the second quarter, demonstrating the progress we’re making in all areas of the business,” Mr. Price added. “We enjoyed remarkable success at Cannes, acquired exceptional TV content and libraries, and added depth to our Board. What a great start for our organization. I commend all Amcomri team members for their efforts in delivering these accomplishments.”
