Hal Hartley’s “Ned Rifle” to Premiere on Vimeo On Demand in Spring 2015

Vimeo has teamed up with celebrated indie stalwart Hal Hartley for the North American release of his latest feature NED RIFLE (https://vimeo.com/113407966), starring Liam Aiken and Aubrey Plaza, which recently bowed to acclaim at Toronto. The film will unspool on a day-and-date platform this spring through a limited exclusive window with Vimeo On Demand, then will expand via Hartley’s own successful digital storefront Possible Films (newly re-christened HalHartley.com) and other aggregated platforms. A limited theatrical five-city art-house launch, led by a run at New York City's IFC Center, will coincide with the VOD release.  
“Hal Hartley is a legendary filmmaker and we are thrilled to have his latest piece premiere exclusively on Vimeo On Demand,” said Sam Toles, VP of Acquisitions and Business Development, Vimeo.
“One can never be independent enough,” says Hartley. “This is a real opportunity to take advantage of new business models, new marketing ideas and platforms, and ultimately, to effectively reach my audience in the most direct and successful way possible.” Hartley is repped by Stephen Gates and Sekka Scher at Evolution Entertainment.
