Double Line: a new initiative in the world of film distribution
Double Line was initiated by two operators in Turin’s entrepreneurial and cultural world. One of them had been active for 15 years in the cinema services sector providing translation, subtitles and video post-production; the other, in the fields of publishing and cultural event planning, both in Italy and abroad. Combining their passion for auteur cinema, they had become acquainted with also attending international film festivals (Cannes, Venice, Berlin…), they funnelled their experience and knowledge into this newly developed initiative, with the aim to acquire and distribute in Italy cinematographic and audiovisual works for theaters, TV, web and home video. The first title released in Italian theaters in Fall 2019 was “The Third Murder” by the acclaimed Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu.
Double Line further provides theatrical services: translations, subtitles, video post-production and promotional material creation. The company employs a team of professionals and collaborators that have signed hundreds of subtitles for movies screened at both Italy’s major film festivals in recent year (Venice, Rome, Turin, among others) and events organized by important institutional actors in the sector (The National Museum of Cinema – Turin; Cineteca Italiana Foundation – Milan).
