LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 6, 2020--
CINEDIGM (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today the Company has acquired North American distribution rights to 100 DAYS TO LIVE, a taut psychological thriller set in the world of suicide prevention and mental health.
100 DAYS TO LIVE follows a woman who grapples with her inner demons by running a suicide support group in Chicago. But when her fiancé is kidnapped by a known murderer, she must race against the clock to discover the identity of the killer, and more importantly - his motive.
The film will be released in early 2021 on all major digital platforms.
The film was written, produced, and directed by Ravin Gandhi, a nationally known serial entrepreneur who is featured often by CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox News. Mr. Gandhi, a lifelong film fan, shot the film over three weeks in Chicago while maintaining his job as CEO of GMM Nonstick Coatings, a company he founded and recently sold to SDK, a $10B Japanese conglomerate.

The film stars Colin Egglesfield (Something Borrowed, Rizzoli & Isles), Gideon Emery (Teen Wolf, Daredevil), Heidi Johanningmeier (Proven Innocent), Yancey Arias (Bosch, Queen of the South), and Chris Johnson (47 Meters Down).
“This is a movie that is going to shock people, and astonishingly it was written and directed by a first-time filmmaker,” said Yolanda Macias, Executive Vice President, Cinedigm Entertainment Group. “We can’t wait for people to see it - it’s a great piece of filmmaking.”
