During January, Darkon will be available online to stream free, as well as pay-per-download.
Cactus Three brokered the partnership with AOL on behalf of Darkon producers Ovie Entertainment, and also secured the theatrical distribution with Porchlight Entertainment, broadcast distribution by IFC and a narrative remake deal with a major Hollywood studio.
Darkon follows the fantasy adventures of real people who gather in parks in the Baltimore/Washington, D.
We are proud to present Darkon on True Stories before it hits theaters and TV, further establishing the channel as an effective platform to build word-of-mouth support for first-run documentaries," according to Jordan Kurzweil, Vice President, Programming and Production for AOL.
We are excited to make Darkon available to the public before its theatrical release," said Cherise Wolas, co-president of Ovie Entertainment.
AOL users will be able to watch Darkon for free this month, participate in its online community and then spread the word about the film.
Tapping into AOL's cutting-edge community of users makes sense to broaden awareness for our documentary which has already proven on the festival circuit to have a surprisingly wide appeal to diverse audiences," said Andrew Neel and Luke Meyer of See Think Productions, the directors of Darkon.
