Experience Cinema with Kino Lorber
Kino Lorber has been a leader of art house film distribution for over 45 years. Founded as Kino International in 1977 and led for decades by industry pioneer Donald Krim, the company rose to prominence importing and releasing international films otherwise neglected in the United States, while also establishing itself as a home for American classics and silent cinema.
With a catalog of over 4,000 films and growing, and a network or interconnected distribution channels including digital streaming, theatrical, and home video, it was important for Kino to choose a platform that can manage sales across a network of consumer and B2B websites.
Cyber-NY has been working with Kino Lorber for over a decade providing digital services for sales, streaming, ecommerce, and order management as well as developing custom tools for email marketing, virtual cinema, and online events. So when Kino chose to launch their next generation network of websites, they went with Logic CMS. With Logic, Cyber-NY is able to provide a single backend for product and order management that powers multiple sites such as Kino Now for video streaming, and Kino Lorber EDU for educational distribution. Logic also powers the home video shop for DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K/UHD, and the theatrical site for in-theater viewing.
The new Kino Lorber website features powerful contextual search and personalization to improve customer experience. On the back-end, built-in tools for geo location, email marketing and cross-linking between digital, theatrical and physical products further enhance Kino's 2023 website. Logic CMS is now ulilized across the complete network of brand sites improving coordination, sharing data and streamlining management of films. Visit kinolorber.com to explore all the new features.
