IFC Films Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
IFC Films is an American film production and distribution company based in New York City. It is an offshoot of IFC owned by AMC Networks. It distributes mainly independent films under its own name, select foreign films and documentaries under its Sundance Selects label and genre films under its IFC Midnight label. It operates the IFC Center.
Back in November 2018, Vulture reported that IFC Films decided to host screenings of an unrated director’s cut of The House That Jack Built which was the latest film from director Lars von Trier in 100 theaters, and well, you can’t just do that. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the MPAA announced that they had “communicated to the distributor, IFC Films, that the screening of an unrated version of the film in such close proximity to the release of the rated version — without obtaining a waiver — is in violation of the rating system’s rules.” As punishment, the MPAA considered to revoke the R rating for the official release of the film, or even stop the rating process for other IFC films, or ban the distributor from the rating process entirely for up to 90 days.
