Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SIMMERN, Germany - Sep 05, 2016 - With six years in the making and a budget of a mere 10,000 euros, director Daniel P. Schenk’s and director of photography Robert Staffl’s self-financed debut feature finally found its international distribution on the Amazon Video-on-demand platform.
The movie was shot in Switzerland by a swiss-german crew, in English for the international market. It tells the story of young art student Marla Singer (Maya Schenk), who appears to have a bad drug experience and who gets thrown into a frightening journey between reality and delusion.
“For a low budget film, whose genre lies in-between, landing a distribution deal is nearly impossible.”, says screenwriter and producer Schenk. “Beyond the Bridge is marketed as a psycho-thriller, but it’s not a typical one. Distributors can’t grasp it. Amazon Video is a great tool for indie filmmakers to get a film in front of its audience, no matter how unconventional it might be. Thanks to the technological advance and Amazon’s broad customer base, BEYOND THE BRIDGE is now available worldwide, with one click.”
The movie’s premiere was held at the Unreal Film Fest in Memphis, USA on October 7th, 2015. It then screened at several international film festivals, like Morbido Fest in Mexico, Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Festival, and Berlin Independent Film Festival. On April 21st, 2016 a cinema tour started through selected german cinemas, accompanied by a Day-and-date release on the official website http://www.beyondthebridgemovie.com, where the movie could be streamed via VHX.TV. Amazon Video now complements this offer. The detail page can be found via http://www.beyondthebridgemovie.com/amazonvideocom. The film is also available as DVD. Source :
