The Global Expansion of Against The Tides

The Global Expansion of Against The Tides

Stefan Stuckert continues to add global distribution to Against The Tides, the documentary film about Beth French and her attempt of the calendar year Oceans Seven.

He reports, “Over the summer, we’ve had still more cinema screenings in the UK and Australia and in the United States, we’ve had interest from both ESPN and Discovery in a non-exclusive deal for their streaming platforms.  Passion River Films is our US distributor – we should hear the conclusions about U.S. distribution in the next few weeks. 

We’re also super excited to partner with Film Platform for the worldwide educational distribution. Film Platform connects academic audiences with leading documentary films from across the world. Their collection is meticulously curated by film experts and leading academics to showcase meaningful documentaries of social, political, and cultural importance.

We’re thrilled to announce the DVD release for the UK and Europe earlier this month. DVDs of Against The Tides are now available worldwide and for more details of where to order your DVD, please visit the Watch The Film page on our website. 

Last, but not least, we started working on a 60-minute version of the film to generate more sales to international TV networks looking for more traditional one hour-long documentary films.”
