The Imprint Films Blu-ray Thread

I figured it was time to start an Imprint Films thread.

Imprint Films is a premium Blu-ray label from Via Vision Entertainment in Australia. Their Blu-ray releases are English-friendly and are usually region-free. You can buy them directly from the Via Vision shop or Oz retailers like JB Hi-Fi. Or you can get them at decent prices from importers like Amazon or the Alliance Entertainment family (Deep Discount, ImportCDs, Blowitoutahere).

The mission statement of Imprint is "delivering a library of 'must have' films of long requested & previously unreleased classics in stunning High Definition. All first pressings of each release will have strictly limited-edition deluxe packaging along with new transfers, audio commentaries, exclusive bonus features & more."

A lot of releases they do are the first time a film is available on Blu-ray worldwide, or the first time it has an English/Region A-friendly release. Some examples of major films getting their first Blu-ray release on Imprint:

Hard Eight (1996)
Lolita (1997)
School Ties (1992)
The Contender (2000)
The Out-of-Towners (1970)
Double Jeopardy (1999)
The Apostle (1997)

Most of their limited edition titles don't get reprinted once they sell out. The Selling Fast page shows you which ones are almost out of stock. New title announcements on Twitter:

Apparently their January titles will be announced next Thursday, and thatíll include their first UHD title(s). One rumor is a Jean Rollin box set (or at least The Nude Vampire).

Neat label out of Australia. They clearly go after movies which haven't seen BD in North America before. The transfers are hit-or-miss for the most part but they often provide exclusive new special features. Kind of a mix between Kino Lorber and Arrow Video.

Why isn’t Barfly mentioned in the October releases?
