Our Major Announcement is Here

We went through hell and back for three years getting this movie made and enjoyed the last two years of film festival screenings and accolades. Now I can make the major announcement that I’ve waited a long time to say: We have reached a WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT with ITN Distribution for our award-winning crime thriller VENDETTA GAMES! In a matter of months, we will have the film on multiple VOD, DVD, Blu-ray, and streaming platforms around the globe. We will share more details over time while it all develops. As we begin to hand off all requested materials to the company, I want to take the time to thank my co-producer and friend JR Carter, my attorneys at Love Law Film, LLPC, all Kickstarter and Indiegogo backers, all the film festivals that honored us, my cinematic partner-in-crime Chris Corulla, and as always the entire cast and crew to get to this moment! We still have a long road ahead of us, but a brand new chapter is just beginning.

Major VENDETTA GAMES Updates

I have two MAJOR updates to bring to your attention regarding Vendetta Games:

1) In regards to the World Music & Independent Film Festival: Due to low sales with the planned festival on the cruise, the Awards Gala has moved. It will be taking place in Washington, D.C. at the Hilton Crystal City Hotel in Virginia on Saturday, January 12, 2019. The event will starts at 10:00 am for pre-gala interview, then lunch at noon, gala will starts at 1:00 pm till 5:00 pm. Tickets are $99 and can be purchased at this link.

2) The Atlantic City Cinefest was this past weekend where we screened. I was not able to attend because I was flying back from London at the time and the awards ceremony was the following day which I was too jet lagged to go to. Then I got some unbelievable news this past Tuesday afternoon: The film won 2 awards for “Best Director, Feature Crime – Andre´ Joseph” and “Best Actor, Feature Crime – Chris Corulla, Jr.”! There’s no doubt in my mind that each of you contributed to the success of VG. And for Chris who has been like a brother to me for 11 years now, this film is as much his as it is mine and JR’s. That’s why I’m proud to call him a brother for life.

We will continue to keep you all posted on future screenings. We’re still actively seeking distribution and had some leads that were not all that promising with their licensing deals. We’re not giving up that effort and though it’s early, we’re beginning to put together story ideas for the 3rd and final Vendetta film. Thanks again, everyone!
