Director Chris Paine’s “Revenge of the Electric Car” will be released this fall in a “non-traditional” distribution format by Area23a. The film will have both regular theatrical runs in large cities as well as some one-time screenings, and will expand to a larger market across the U.S. later this fall. “Revenge” premiered at Tribeca this year, and is slated to be the closing feature at this year’s Silverdocs.
Another way people can see the film is to visit its website and request that the film be screened in their town. Areas which reach a certain number of votes will receive a public screening.
Director Paine stated that he’s “very excited to announce our partnership with Area23a for our theatrical release at Silverdocs. Area23a has a strong team that understands the changing distribution model for documentaries. 2011 marks the return of the electric car to the world and I’m happy ’Revenge’ will be able to bring that story to people this fall.”
