Cinedigm has promoted Vincent Scordino to senior vice-president of theatrical releasing. Previously, Scordino was vice president of theatrical acquisitions. In this newly created position, Scordino will head up the company’s robust theatrical releasing business, overseeing distribution and acquisitions. He will continue to focus on acquiring content and establishing distribution partnerships.
Cinedigm is currently releasing Destin Daniel Cretton’s highly acclaimed Short Term 12, which launched in New York and Los Angeles last month and is expanding nationwide. Other current and upcoming releases include Penny Lane’s Our Nixon, Jill Soloway's Afternoon Delight in partnership with The Film Arcade, Godfrey Reggio’s Visitors (premiering at the Toronto Film Festival), and Shaul Schwarz’s Narco Cultura (in theatres this fall).
“Vincent has been a major asset to Cinedigm over the past year as we launched our theatrical releasing business. Not only is he a top independent film executive with great taste, he's also highly collaborative and strategic,” said Susan Margolin, co-president of Cinedigm’s Entertainment Group. “He brings integrity, great energy and intelligence to everything he does and he's widely respected both within the company and throughout the greater film community.”
Over the past year Cinedigm has aggressively grown its theatrical business and plans to release 15-20 theatrical films per year with a variety of release patterns from traditional platform to day-and-date VOD to pre-theatrical VOD.
Prior to joining Cinedigm in July 2012, Scordino was at Millennium where he led negotiations in acquiring films including Richard Linklater’s Bernie and Oren Moverman's Rampart, among others. Previously, he was an executive at Apparition and Picturehouse after working as an agent at Sandra Marsh Management. Scordino will report to Margolin.
