So sad and sorry to say that as of September 29, 2009, we have closed our doors after a wonderful, 13-year run as Picture This! Over the years we have globe-trotted to bring you quality gay, lesbian and coming-of-age features and shorts, but increasingly undeniable economic realities have sadly put an abrupt end to our mission.
A recognized trailblazer in distribution for 25 years, DW Diversified, Inc., through its labels Picture This! Entertainment and Picture This! Home Video, proudly brought uncompromising and enlightening motion picture fare to discriminating audiences throughout North America. With such watershed films as COME UNDONE, O FANTASMA, GLUE, 15, WHOLE NEW THING, BEFORE THE FALL and A LOVE TO HIDE, among others, the Company proved its desire to push the envelope and disturb the sleeping masses.
Internationally, the company was a presence at film markets and festivals for a quarter of a century. With the gala launching of the Picture This brand in Cannes, France in 1996, the Company made a commitment to gay and lesbian audiences by licensing North American independent GLBT film to distributors and television networks around the world. In 1998, the company formed its domestic distribution component, which, in the 11 years since, released nearly 100 feature and short films theatrically, to film festivals, VHS, DVD and television buyers in North America.
Somewhere along the way, we discovered a lot of fascinating films about young people making their way through the challenges of growing up. Thus was born our “coming-of-age” line, which we felt complimented our catalog in many ways. It became such a success that we started a stand-alone website just for those films.
Thank you for your support and kindness over the years. We wish you only the best in your studies, your careers and your personal lives. May you achieve greatness and happiness (ideally at the same time).
Your Picture This Team. Your Picture This! Team
