Drafthouse Films announced today its partnership with VHX (the minds behind the online distribution of Indie Game: The Movie), a platform that empowers artists and filmmakers to sell their work directly to fans, to unleash their must-see midnight movie sensation of the year, Miami Connection across the internet. Directed by black-belt/author/inspirational speaker Grandmaster Y.K. Kim and in what Entertainment Weekly calls, “your next favorite cult classic,” fearless martial arts rock band Dragon Sound embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice in the streets of Orlando. The film will be available on the VHX platform via standard and deluxe DRM-free digital downloads and multi-device streaming starting at $6 via the film’s brand-new, official website: www.MiamiConnection.org.
VHX co-founder Casey Pugh said, “We're thrilled to be working with the Drafthouse team on Miami Connection. We are all huge fans of the film, and are excited to do everything we can to help more people experience this unique treasure containing ninja standoffs, righteous guitar moments, and heartwarmingly sincere friendships. Like Drafthouse, VHX is committed to bringing artists' work to the fans. We strongly believe in the Drafthouse ethos of quality films and awesome audience experience. We are thrilled to help them develop and uphold these values as we continue to work together (and against the ninja).”
“We very greatly impressed with the work VHX did with Indie Game: The Movie,” says Drafthouse Films COO James Emanuel Shapiro, “and we were grateful that they responded so well to Miami Connection. We believe we will be friends for eternity, honesty, loyalty and do great things together with this thunder-raging classic!”
