We are trilled to announce two new Sales and Distribution partnerships with Terracotta Distribution and Third Window Films! We will be fulfilling physical distribution, Digital Transactional, and overseeing SVOD and TV sales for each label from March 1st.

Having notably released ‘Fires On The Plain’ and ‘Destruction Babies’ last year, Third Window have another prolific and eclectic year ahead. On March 26th, Third Window will release ‘Love and Other Cults’ written and directed by Eiji Uchida and produced by Third Window Films’ own Adam Torel. ‘The Whispering Star’ directed by Third Window stalwart Sion Sono will be released on April 16th and on April 30th comes Sono’s hotly anticipated ‘Antiporno’, which will be the 7th release from the director on the label. Previous releases include ‘Cold Fish’, ‘Love Exposure’ and ‘Himizu’.

“Third Window Films are incredibly excited to partner with one of the world’s leading distributors of cutting-edge cinema in Arrow Films. Like Arrow, Third Window have prided ourselves on keeping physical media alive with a wide variety of interesting titles in stellar packages, with a focus on customer satisfaction and collectability. We believe that partnering with Arrow is a step forward to keeping physical media going strong and helping get unknown and underseen films out to a larger audience!” – Adam Torel, Third Window Films

"We are over the moon to be partnering with Arrow, with whom we have had a long-standing collaborative relationship with and this feels like a really natural next step for us to be working even more closely with each other." – Joey Leung, Terracotta Distribution

“I’m delighted that Arrow Films will be overseeing sales and distribution for acclaimed labels Terracotta & Third Window. Both offer a rich catalogue of diverse content, which will very much complement our own output.  What we can bring to these guys is huge social media reach, multiple direct to consumer offerings and an excellent retail customer base  – we look forward to a highly successful relationship’ Alex Agran, CEO Arrow Films

The Third Window Films brand was born in 2005 when its film-loving founders grew bored of the stream of worn-out shock horror vehicles from the Far East. For over 10 years, Third Window have worked tirelessly to become one of the leaders in the UK for Asian cinema distribution, focusing on original and unique directors such as Sion Sono, Shinya Tsukamoto, Eiji Uchida and many others to create a new marketplace for Asian cinema fans. “Third Window Films be your window to the East!”

Terracotta Films is best known for releasing the multi-award winning 'Breathless' directed by Yang Ik-june, Terracotta Distribution also have two imprint labels: Terror-Cotta focuses on Asian horror and thrillers like the recent 'Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell’; Sharp Teeth Films is a non-Asian language label which has released the hip hop documentary ‘Rubble Kings’ and experimental slasher ‘You Are Not Alone’. Terracotta also run the Terracotta Far East Film Festival which is an annual event aiming to widen the audience for Far Eastern film in the UK.
