Bitmax Chosen to Distribute Acclaimed Documentary Across Major Digital Distribution Platforms
Bitmax, the digital media management and licensing company, has been chosen to digitally distribute the critically acclaimed film Fantastic Fungi to major digital distribution platforms as a Premium Video on Demand (PVOD) release. The film will be available on Apple, Vudu, Google, and Amazon Prime from TBD in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, and German, with opportunities for audiences to pre-order as of TBD.
Fantastic Fungi has enjoyed a successful theatrical run which was brought to an abrupt end in March due to Covid-19 and the resulting theater closings. Audiences will also be able to enjoy a digital extras package, created by Bitmax, that will be distributed with the film containing bonus material and behind the scene footage.
Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg and narrated by Brie Larson, is an immersive journey through time into the underground network of the fungi kingdom. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists, the film illustrates how fungi’s beauty and intelligence can offer solutions to some of the world’s pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.
Richard Martin CEO at Bitmax, said, “We are honored to have earned the trust of Louie Schwartzberg to distribute this immersive film across all the major digital outlets.”
