Hollywood, CA -- Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp.(NASDAQ: CIDM), the global leader in digital cinema, is pleased toannounce it will provide digital cinema advice to the 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival's filmmakers.

"We're delighted that Cinedigm Digital Cinema is joining us at the Festival to educate filmmakers about the enormous opportunities they offer."

"Digital cinema provides amazing opportunities for filmmakers," said Jill Newhouse Calcaterra, chief marketing officer of Cinedigm.

To kick off the educational partnership, Cinedigm will be hosting the exclusive filmmaker reception during the Los Angeles Film Festival, with executives on hand to share the story of digital cinema and answer any questions from the filmmakers.

Cinedigm recently announced it is distributing the groundbreaking documentary LIFE IN A DAY in conjunction with National Geographic Entertainment and YouTube. Additionally, last month they announced a partnership to distribute John Carpenter's psychological thriller THE WARD.

New York, NY -- Screenvision, the leading innovator in cinema advertising, has announced that Revlon has signed on as the presenting sponsor for the upcoming cinematic release of the New York Philharmonic production of Company. The Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim was recorded live last month at Lincoln Center's famed Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, and will be released by Screenvision for a limited engagement in hundreds of digital cinema theatres nationwide beginning on June 15.

Headlining the production is (in alphabetical order): Craig Bierko, Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer, Katie Finneran, Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Hendricks, Aaron Lazar, Patti LuPone, Jill Paice, Martha Plimpton, Anika Noni Rose, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Jim Walton and Chryssie Whitehead. Sondheim specialist Paul Gemignani conducts the New York Philharmonic with Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations. Lonny Price is the director; Josh Rhodes is the choreographer; Lonny Price and Matt Cowart are the producers and Ellen M. Krass is the executive producer.

As the presenting sponsor, Revlon -- one of the strongest consumer brand franchises in the world -- will receive premium on-screen advertising before every presentation of Company, which is booked into approximately 500 theatres across the country. In addition, Revlon will have a prominent presence at the Company star-studded, red carpet premiere taking place June 8 in New York City.

Company will screen in over 50 markets that not only include New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Boston, but also smaller cities, including St. Louis and Milwaukee, to give as wide an audience as possible an affordable Broadway experience. Tickets, showtimes and locations are now available at: www.companyonscreen.com. Tickets will be available for $18 each - a mere fraction of the cost of a Broadway production of this caliber.
