UBERTO PASOLINI'S AWARD-WINNING STILL LIFE SET FOR JANUARY RELEASE VIA TRIBECA FILM

New York (November 6, 2014) – Tribeca Film announced today that it has acquired North American rights for Uberto Pasolini’s award-winning film Still Life from Beta Cinema and will release the film in theaters January 16, 2015 with cable/telco and satellite video-on-demand and digital platforms starting January 13, 2015. Written and directed by Pasolini, the film stars Eddie Marsan (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Joanne Froggatt (Emmy® Award nominee, “Downton Abbey”). The film had its world premiere at the 2013 Venice Film Festival where it won four awards: the Orizzonti Award for Best Director, the Pasinetti Award for Best Film, Cinema D’Arte e d’Essai award, and the Civitas Vitae prossima for Best Film.

Life for the unassuming John May (Eddie Marsan) has always revolved around his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. Profoundly dedicated to his work, he believes that everyone deserves a dignified exit, and writes eulogies and organizes funerals for those who wouldn't have them otherwise. But when a new case – an elderly alcoholic in a flat directly opposite his own – hits him harder than usual, he journeys outside London to track down the man's long-abandoned daughter (Joanne Froggatt). Against the odds, the two lonely souls are drawn to each other – and John's outlook starts to open to life's possibilities.

Still Life was produced by Felix Vossen, Christopher Simon, and Uberto Pasolini.

Vancouver, BC, Santa Monica, CA, and New York, NY – October 20, 2014 – In a move to offer premium content to a growing online audience, Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a premier next generation global content leader, and Tribeca Enterprises, a diversified global media company which owns and operates the Tribeca Film Festival, have partnered to launch a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service, the two companies announced today.

The service, called Tribeca Short List, will encompass a prestigious selection of Lionsgate and Tribeca titles as well as critically-acclaimed films drawn from around the world.  The films will be curated by Tribeca and leading voices in contemporary culture and refreshed on a weekly basis.  The service is slated to launch in the first half of calendar 2015.
