FilmRise Announces A $27 Million Acquisiton Fund Raise

October 5, 2016 — Variety announced that Brooklyn-based distribution company FilmRise has raised an additional $27 million for the financing of film and TV titles for all distribution channels.

This is the second raise of acquisition capital through Harlan Capital Partners LLC; the first was for $25 million. Harlan Capital Partners has been the lead source of financing for FilmRise since 2015.

“FilmRise has grown incredibly over the past year with a wide array of acquisitions across all distribution channels, much in part to our wonderful partnership with Harlan Capital,” said FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher. “We are beyond thrilled to continue this fruitful relationship.”

FilmRise has acquired the Emmy®-winning documentary Going Clear, the science fiction anime series Robotech and the acclaimed documentaries For the Love of Spock and Tab Hunter Confidential. The company has over 6,000 titles in its catalog.

FilmRise has also theatrically distributed Janis: Little Girl Blue, Elizabeth Woods’ drama White Girl (which opened  with the highest per screen average during its first weekend),  The Witness, about the investigation into the murder of Kitty Genovese, the audience award-winning Harry & Snowman, Silicon Cowboys and Elstree 1976. The Sundance Film Festival cult hit The Greasy Strangler opens later this week, and five more releases will hit theaters before the end of the year.

Danny Fisher, Jack Fisher and Alan Klingenstein founded FilmRise in 2010 under the name Fisher Klingenstein Films.
