New Yorker Films' Dirt Nap

After 43 years New Yorker Films closed its doors last week, the latest victim of the New Depression. What a drag. A whole series of outstanding films from world and indie directors lost their U.S. distribution as a result and while some of these films are available elsewhere (Mongrel carries a handful here, for example) the rest just became a lot harder to find.

It might be worth our while to catalog all our NYF titles and pull those that aren't available elsewhere. According to their website, the hope is that they will find a buyer but in the interim we might want to keep an eye on our NYF titles.

a sad day indeed for a true giant of arthouse film. hopefully a generous donor with their heart in the right place (scott?) picks up the catalogue rights...
