LGBTQ+ Specialist Wolfe Video Cuts DVD, Blu-ray Disc Deal for Two Bleecker Street Films

Wolfe Video on April 15 announced that it has entered a home entertainment partnership with DECAL for two Bleecker Street films, Harry Macqueen’s Supernova and Mona Fastvold’s The World to Come.

Wolfe Video has already announced a DVD and Blu-ray Disc release date for Supernova on May 18; The World to Come will follow on June 1.

In The World to Come, a 19th century romance set in the American Northeast, Abigail (Katherine Waterston, “Fantastic Beasts” franchise), a farmer’s wife, and her new neighbor Tallie (Academy Award nominee Vanessa Kirby, Pieces of a Woman) find themselves irrevocably drawn to each other. A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer (Casey Affleck) as free spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney (Christopher Abbott). Together, their intimacy beings to fill a void in each other’s lives they never knew existed.

The World to Come had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, where it was awarded the prestigious Queer Lion award, before its domestic premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Bleecker Street released the film theatrically on Feb. 12 and digitally on March 2.

The World to Come was directed by Mona Fastvold (The Sleepwalker) from a screenplay by Ron Hansen and Jim Shepard, and is based on an original story by Shepard. The film was produced by Sea Change Media, Killer Films, and M.Y.R.A. Entertainment, in association with Hype Film, Charades, Yellow Bear Films, Panasper Films Ltd. and Ingenious Media.

The deal was negotiated by Kathy Wolfe and Evan Schwartz from Wolfe Video and Kent Sanderson from Bleecker Street.

“We are excited to partner with the team at DECAL and Bleecker Street for these two special films in the LGBTQ+ genre,” said Schwartz, VP of content at Wolfe Video. “With Wolfe’s home video expertise and long-time presence in the LGBTQ+ community, we believe LGBTQ+ and mainstream audiences will hold a place for Supernova and The World to Come in their physical media collections.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Wolfe on these two beautiful films,” said Kent Sanderson, president of acquisitions and ancillary distribution at Bleecker Street. “They have proven themselves to be leaders in the space and we know that they will help us continue to find new audiences to enjoy Harry and Mona’s work.”

Each DVD and Blu-ray Disc will include behind-the-scenes featurettes, English closed captions, English audio descriptions and Spanish subtitles.

Founded in 1985, Wolfe Video says it is the largest exclusive distributor of lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) films.

‘Supernova’ to Arrive on Blu-ray Disc, DVD on May 18 From Wolfe Video

Independent distributor Wolfe Video has set a May 18 home release date for Supernova, a British drama written and directed by Harry Macqueen.

The film will be released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, with a prebook date for retailers of April 6.

Supernova follows Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci), partners of 20 years, as they travel across England in their old camper van, visiting friends, family and places from their past. Tusker is diagnosed with early onset dementia, prompting the pair to spend as much time together as they can.

Supernova had its world premiere at the San Sebastián International Film in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain, in September 2020.

The film was released in the United States in January by Bleecker Street and in the United Kingdom in March by StudioCanal.
