Written by playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute and directed by Daisy von Scherler Mayer (“Party Girl”), “Girl(s)” debuted to positive notices at this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival in March.
According to Deadline, producers Leeden Media decided to forgo traditional release routes to get the film to audiences faster and enjoy control over the marketing. Vimeo gives filmmakers the option to set their own prices, streaming periods and regions and offers a 90/10 profit split.
“Some Girl(s)” will be priced for sale at $10 with bonus features or for rental at $5. The film will also have a limited theatrical run in New York and Los Angeles beginning June 28.
Bell already has a close association with innovative new models for filmmakers thanks to the successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the long-awaited “Veronica Mars” movie.
