November 2, 2016—After careful review of large format distribution options, N3D Land has chosen K2 Communications to handle worldwide distribution of D-Day: Normandy 1944. N3D Land opted to select a new distributor following incumbent distribution company 3D Entertainment's decision to have K2 handle distribution of their library. Pascal Vuong, writer/director of D-Day and co-founder of N3D Land, says, “The topic of WWII is really important to me and that's why I made D-Day: Normandy 1944. It faithfully pays tribute to a key battle that resulted in the freedom we all enjoy today. So many individuals paid the ultimate price. I have such an emotional connection to this film that I wanted to appoint a distributor that would do the best job. The film is also complimentary to some of K2's current titles, which is an advantage.”
According to K2's president, Mark Kresser, “When Pascal approached us, we were honored. He is credited with producing a film that was such a hit for our industry. Additionally, it was a challenging story to pay homage to in just 40 minutes. And I must say, he did an outstanding job!”
Out of the 10 international awards won by D-Day: Normandy 1944, four have been attributed by the Giant Screen industry. During the GSCA 2014 conference, D-Day received four Achievement Awards including: Best Original Score, Best Sound Design, Best Visual Effects, and Best Film for Lifelong Learning. Additionally, Saint Louis Science Center was rewarded for Best Launch by a Theater.
The film artfully navigates a time that was devastating and emotionally wrenching for human history, crossing all demographics—age, gender and education. This was evident in the record attendance enjoyed by many theaters throughout the network.
Any theater interested in (re-) licensing D-Day: Normandy 1944 for a feature exhibition or military anniversary run may contact K2 directly (k2communications.com).
