Alliance Films is back to releasing future Miramax films after it renewed its Canadian distribution agreement with the U.S. studio.

Under the new output deal, Alliance will continue to distribute library titles, and add upcoming films such as The Debt (pictured) and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.

Alliance and Miramax have done business since 1987, but that relationship was interrupted after the Weinstein brothers left the U.S. studio to start their own and Maple Pictures began releasing Miramax titles here in 2008.

Miramax CEO Mike Lang in a statement said the studio welcomed continuing its long-standing partnership with Alliance on library titles, while now expanding the relationship to new theatrical releases.

“Alliance is one of the top distribution companies in the world and their team brings a combination of experience and innovative thinking that fits perfectly with Miramax’s mission,” he said.
