(100 Days to Live opens next month)

Cinedigm has announced the release date for its recently acquired film – 100 Days to Live, a taut psychological thriller set in the world of suicide prevention and mental health.

The film, which was shot over 3 weeks in Chicago, 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).

Owing to most theaters’ remaining closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, the film will be released February 2, 2021 on transactional VOD and DVD. The film will debut on many digital platforms in Canada, including Apple/iTunes, Amazon, Google/YouTube, Sony/Playstation, and Microsoft/Xbox, as we as Canadian transactional VOD from Unobstructed View, including Bell, Shaw, MTS (same delivery as Bell), Rogers, Sasktel, Telus, Cogeco, and Videotron, among others.

100 Days to Live follows a woman who grapples with her inner demons by running a suicide support group in Chicago. But when her fiancĂ© is kidnapped by a known murderer, she must race against the clock to discover the identity of the killer, and more importantly – his motive.

100 Days to Live was written, produced, and directed by Ravin Gandhi, a nationally-known serial entrepreneur and commentator often featured on CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox News.

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.

According to Gandhi, “Being able to tell a good story has made me successful as an entrepreneur. Making a feature film was a bucket list goal, and it’s surreal 100 Days to Live is getting released. I’m thrilled to have Cinedigm as a partner.”

100 Days to Live premiered at the San Diego International Film Festival, where it was awarded Best World Premiere and Best First Time Director.

“This is a movie that is going to shock people, and truly astonishing 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.”
