Dov Kornits, publisher and founder of Film Ink, Australia’s leading film magazine, invites Australian Greek filmmakers and moviegoers to attend the launch of his new distribution company Screen Inc, which kicks off next Wednesday with three gala screenings at the Ritz in Sydney and George Street Event Cinemas.

“I wanted to do something special,” says Dov Kornits, Founder and Director of Screen Inc.. “Because Screen Inc. is all about movies, what better way could there be to get the business started than by screening the first three films on our slate? The Screen Inc. Showcase will be three days of great Australian films at two iconic Sydney cinemas.

As the founder, editor and publisher of longtime magazine FilmInk, Dov Kornits is a true pillar of Australian cinema. His exciting new venture, film distribution company Screen Inc., will provide a platform for Australian filmmakers to get their content into cinemas and in front of audiences.

“I can’t think of a better action than discovering a great movie and sharing it with others,” Kornits said. “Film distribution is really an extension of what I’ve been doing since college, when my passion for film inspired me to start a film company; then FilmInk and now Screen Inc. I look forward to sharing my passion for cinematic storytelling with audiences and with like-minded businesses such as cinemas and streamers.

The Screen Inc. Showcase kicks off Wednesday, November 9 at the Ritz at Randwick in Sydney with a special gala screening of The Land. Directed by acclaimed Swedish-born photographer Ingvar Kenne (who has exhibited internationally for thirty years, with a host of high profile exhibitions and five books to his name), The Land is a stunning combination of courageous cinema, shrewd, brave and richly layered, deeply personal storytelling. Boasting powerful performances from co-writers Steve Rodgers and Cameron Stewart, The Land brilliantly details a complex male friendship clouded by a long-buried secret from the past.

The Screen Inc. showcase continues Thursday, November 10 at Event Cinemas George Street with a gala screening of The Florist, writer/director Andrew Ryan’s shrewd satire, which is produced by and stars Rebecca Murphy as the enterprising millennial Annika, who made a name for herself selling flowers edible hypnotics to trendy LA restaurants. Ruthless and blindly ambitious, Annika puts her ethics on the line when her competitors begin to close in. Like the shrewdest and most biting films, The Florist was made by outsiders – an Australian couple trying to break into Los Angeles – and the result is a wholesale morality story.

Closing out The Screen Inc. Showcase is a very special presentation of a 4K remastered version of Serhat Caradee’s tense 2009 crime drama, Cedar Boys. A powerful and authentic look at growing up as a first-generation migrant in Australia, Cedar Boys is even more relevant now than it was on its initial theatrical release, and features performances of bravery from Les Chantery, Rachael Taylor, Martin Henderson, Bren Foster, Buddy Dannoun and Waddah Sari. More than ten years after its initial release, Cedar Boys is still soaring.

Sponsored by Hawke’s Brewing Co. and Kabuki Boy, each screening will be a special event in itself. There will be a media wall for photo ops; the cast and crew of each film will be present at each screening, along with VIP guests; and each ticket holder will receive a bespoke goody bag.
