Arrow are pleased to be establishing their first Arrow Video Cult Corner at Birmingham this week!
Fans of cult film can expect an array of new titles and a visual feast of the old school that has become commonplace with Arrow releases along with the opportunity to meet some of the team responsible for the UK’s leading cult label.
Arrow Films is a leading UK-based independent entertainment distribution company, established in 1991. At that time, it was focused on cult and world cinema on VHS. Early releases included Cinema Paradiso and Hellraiser, releases Arrow are proud to still distribute to this day. In the early 2000s Alex Agran became CEO and in 2009 started Arrow Video with the aim of presenting cult films in definitive editions. This started with DVDs of Italian horror classics like The House by the Cemetery and Macabre along with other cult titles like Caligula and later Dawn and Day of the Dead.
Through their key brand labels, Arrow Video and Arrow Academy, the company is also a leading restorer and theatrical distributor of classic and cult/horror films, including landmark titles such as Donnie Darko (15th anniversary) and Hellraiser (30th anniversary).
Arrow Video is widely considered to be the global market leader in the Premium Home Entertainment market, fuelled by passionate and expert curation, aligned with state of the art in-house film restoration – resulting in highly sought after bespoke Blu-ray editions of classic, cult and horror films. Beloved by collectors, this ever-expanding brand continues to delight a growing international fan base with high-end Limited-Edition boxsets and deluxe, definitive Blu-ray editions with uncut versions, newly commissioned artwork, specially curated extras and booklets. The Arrow Video film collection now spans more than 300 releases including films from Dario Argento, Wes Craven, John Carpenter and many more.
Forever pushing to give fans of cult film more, Arrow are also beginning to grow into the release of vinyl soundtracks under Arrow Records, mastered with as much care as the DVDs and Blu-rays, as well as Arrow Books, with new releases each month focusing on specific films, cult filmmakers and actors and more.
It’s no wonder that the Arrow team are excited to be attending MCM Birmingham this year, bringing the first Arrow Video Cult Corner to life, with a chance to showcase new titles and celebrate old ones alike this is an event that will be memorable for the team and fans alike.
