About Carlotta Films:
As an independent company, CARLOTTA FILMS has been promoting heritage cinema in France for 18 years: re-releasing restored classic films, cult films from the 70s & 80s, and also working specifically with young audiences.

Since its creation, CARLOTTA FILMS has steadily developed and supported every technological evolution, and released or re-released heritage films, using every medium: theatrical distribution, festivals attendance, DVD and Blu-ray editions, its own VoD platform (www.carlottavod.com), VoD distribution on major platforms, and more recently also an International Sales Section specialized in Independent Heritage Film.

With its work on Cinema History, the discovery of new horizons and new audience, CARLOTTA FILMS has decided to create its own company in the US, CARLOTTA FILMS US, in order to develop, with the same spirit as in France, an active distribution, specialized in revivals, with releases in theaters, as well as on DVD, Blu-ray, VoD, and TV in North America.

CARLOTTA FILMS US wishes to position itself in a complementary way as the already-existing independent American companies, who are doing a great job on Cinema History (both in theaters and DVD/Blu-ray). To do an important work on independent revivals and more especially, but not only, French films, especially from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, and to work on all media, starting with theatrical releases, festivals, then DVD/Blu-ray/VoD and TV.

And to create, from one side of the Atlantic to the other, bridges — links about Cinema History between France and America, with similar, different and new audiences.

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
~ Steven Soderbergh
