We are thrilled to announce that Focus World, a wing of Focus Features, and Screen Media have paired up to bring Birder’s to the US — both in theaters and on demand. We’re not sure on the exact date, but it’ll be this Spring! It’s the perfect home for us and we can’t wait to share this film with everyone.
Also exciting was all the press coverage the announcement got, including Variety, Hollywood Reporter, Deadline Hollywood, The Wrap, Ion Cinema, and even Yahoo News! The word is getting out.
