“Nowhere Nevada,” an award-winning movie shot in Northern Nevada, has a five-year, worldwide distribution deal signed with Wild Eye Releasing.
The movie was 100 percent cast, filmed and produced in Northern Nevada, with an all-Nevada crew as well, and served as a vehicle highlighting regional artistic and musical talent.
“I am thrilled to be working with an exciting and innovative company like Wild Eye Releasing to bring our film to international audiences,” said Brian L. Sutherland, executive producer of the Indie film.
Wild Eye Releasing of New Jersey, in an announcement put out by both Sutherland and the distributor, was termed a dark, art-house and cult film distribution company.
Wild Eye Releasing intends to distribute the movie in the second quarter this year.
Directed by David Richards and written by the late Marianne Psota, the film was musically scored by Nick Ramirez and had its festival premiere in 2014 at the San Francisco Global Film Festival.
It won best feature film there, according to Monday’s news release, and had its public world premiere at the Masonic Lodge in Reno at the end of July 2015, during Artown.
Wild Eye Releasing — which the news release said prefers weird, dark and twisted anti-mainstream films — has distributed 128 movies since 2008. It specializes in films of the micro-budget Indie movie world.
“Nowhere Nevada’ not only took 2014 feature honors in San Francisco, it also was second in the best crime drama category at an Ohio Indie International Film Festival, according to Monday’s announcement.
