April 8, 2019: Vancouver, British Columbia. The Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSXV: WNDR)(OTC: WDRFF) (“Wonderfilm” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received TSXV final acceptance and completed the non-exclusive joint venture agreement (“JV Agreement”) with Impossible Dream Entertainment Inc. (“IDE”) that was previously announced February 22, 2019.
Kirk Shaw, Wonderfilm CEO: “It’s unlikely that the market yet realizes the significance of this joint venture, particularly as it pertains to Wonderfilm emerging as a potent theatrical feature film developer and producer. Partnering with IDE means working with one of the most successful Feature Film producers over the last two years with a string of successful movies nominated for Oscars and exceeding $100 million each in revenue from box office tickets. Our near term target is to develop and produce four theatrical features with IDE, which in itself is a significant growth step for the Company. I like to compare this to Lionsgate, which built itself from the single film franchise, ‘Saw’, a success that brought buzz and huge cash influx. One similar hit from our partnership with Shaun Redick would move Wonderfilm into the position of being a dominant player in the theatrical movie industry and considerably increase revenue.”
Wonderfilm and IDE are in the business of identifying, creating, producing, managing and distributing film and video content , to a multitude of countries of the World and see a vision of collaborating as co-producers and developers of quality content. The JV Agreement is for an initial five (5) year term and automatically renews for subsequent five (5) year terms. IDE will provide to Wonderfilm, updates to the IDE Projects List and if Wonderfilm elects to proceed with a submitted IDE Project, both companies will negotiate a separate JV Project Agreement (“JV Project”). IDE is not required to submit all of its planned projects exclusively or on a “first look” basis to Wonderfilm. IDE will provide updates to the IDE Projects List periodically of at least every three (3) months. All successfully negotiated individual JV Projects rights are to be transferred to Wonderfilm and then down to a newly created Single Purpose Entity or Special Purpose Vehicle for development.
In addition, the Mr. Dennis Nerland has resigned as Director for the Company for personal reasons and Management and Directors wish him good luck with future endeavours. At this time, the Company is actively searching qualified candidates.
