First it won the Cesar Award for Best Animated Film. Then it delighted audiences at the 2013 AJFF. Now The Rabbi's Cat, which made history as AJFF's first 3D screening, is coming to your living room.
In an early announcement to retailers, the distributor has set a date of April 9, 2013 for the Blu-ray release of the film. This is just the latest AJFF title to show up on DVD or streaming on demand.
One of the most common questions AJFF receives from its fans is where they can find certain films for home video purchase. Since AJFF doesn't own the rights to any of these films, it can be a difficult question to answer. Certainly many films that screen at the festival go on to theatrical and home video releases, but not all do, and it's anyone's guess which ones will end up in your Netflix queue.
But in an effort to keep you informed, we'll periodically highlight films that make it to home video (or a local theater near you), so you can snatch them up.
Elsewhere from the 2013 festival, Lore is currently in a limited theatrical release, a prelude to an eventual DVD release (it's already up for pre-order on Amazon's UK site for those with region free players).
My Awkward Sexual Adventure which headlined our 2013 Gen-Y Night at Atlantic Station has garnered festival buzz and a theatrical release later this year under the name An Awkward Sexual Adventure. It remains a likely contender for home video release soon after.
