I make it a point NOT to have SWANKS'S number though they are on the web
however you should understand that if you contact them or ANY of the
companies mentioned that they DO NOT HAVE ANY RIGHTS FOR FILMS OUTSIDE THE
US & sometimes Canada. I would strongly advice against contacting them
unless you need either prints or rights for US ONLY SCREENINGS. SWANK is
merely a sub distributor for Hollywood product to you would have to contact
the rights holders directly for anything outside the US.
Also a reminder that US companies rarely if ever have rights for screenings
foreign films outside the US, so companies like Kino, New Yorker etc do not
have rights anything outside US & possibly Canada.
