MUMBAI: DocuBay, the premium international documentary VOD streaming service by IN10 Media Group, announced two significant acquisition deals -- one signed with France’s Kwanza and the other with UK’s Journeyman Pictures. The acquisition deals with both distributors include award-winning and award-nominated features which will be available for worldwide streaming on DocuBay when the service officially launches globally in later this year. All the films will be available with English subtitles.

Notable titles acquired from Kwanza- an independent producer and distributor based in France- include award winning features like Himalayan Gold Rush, directed by Oscar-nominated Eric Valli, about Nepalese villagers embarking on a dangerous trek through the Himalayas in search of a fungus that’s worth its weight in gold; and Deeper, that follows the story of Pascal Bernabe on his record-breaking deep ocean dive of 1080 feet. 

Other titles acquired from Kwanza include Touring Talkies, Chadar: The Ice Trail, Hitler’s Last Secrets, Travelling with the Jinju, and Jack London: An American Adventure.

Notable titles acquired from Journeyman Pictures, a UK-based global distributor and sales agent, include award winning titles PlayMe Burlesque, a feature about the resurgence of the art of Burlesque in NYC; Moonwalk One, a feature about the Apollo 11 moon landing, digitally remastered from the 1970 original, and Sealers: One Last Hunt, an award nominated feature that follows a motley crew of seal hunters who aim to keep an ancient, but increasingly controversial Norwegian tradition alive.

Additional titles acquired from Journeyman Pictures include Angkor Awakens, The Billion Dollar Bust, I Love My Muslim, Every Other Couple, Unbounded, and Guardians of the Strait.

Akul Tripathi (COO, DocuBay) stated: “We are eager for DocuBay to launch in Q2, and to share our passion for rich, compelling human stories that unite us as One Tribe. Our mission of delivering a vertical, premium service that features excellent documentary films to consumers globally is furthered through our partnerships with exceptional international content distributors like Kwanza, and Journeyman Pictures.”
