Philadelphia, PA – Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce a new venture as it opens a United Kingdom distribution label. With a rapid release of three LGBT-themed titles in the 4th quarter, Breaking Glass UK will release one title per month of varying genres as it continues to grow internationally. Stemming from their fully developed International Sales Division, Breaking Glass Pictures’ venture into the United Kingdom will be their first expansion into international distribution.
Named after David Bowie’s 1995 hit Breaking Glass, CEO Rich Wolff and Co-President Richard Ross began Breaking Glass Pictures with expansion in mind. “It’s what we’ve always been aiming for. We want to bring our success from the U.S. to the U.K. ”
“After celebrating our third anniversary in North America, Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce our launch in the UK through Lace Digital Media Group. We promise an exciting, diverse mix of product that will include LGBT, horror, documentary and star-driven independent fare,” said Ross.
Breaking Glass UK will debut with the 8 October release of the gay thriller “Into the Lion’s Den”, starring gay icons Jesse Archer and Ronnie Kroell. Three friends on a cross-country trip have a bad encounter with fate as they are drawn to The Lion’s Den, a bar in the middle of nowhere.
Releasing on 22 October, Breaking Glass UK will examine the complex relationship between sexuality and religion in “The Seminarian” – the story of one closeted seminary student torn between his love of God and the love of his life.
And just in time for the holidays, 3 December will see the release of “Walk a Mile in My Pradas”. Starring comedian Tom Arnold, a little Christmas magic causes two coworkers with contrasting lifestyles to switch sexual orientations. Can a gay man survive in an overly masculine hetero world? Can a dominantly straight man cope with living in a gay pride world?
The Breaking Glass banner reflects the filmmaker’s eclectic influences, and will not be limited to specific genres. Breaking Glass UK will focus on releasing a wide range of provocative and challenging films from all genres.
