Not long ago, Kevin Smith and a company called Phase 4 announced a distribution partnership, in which Phase 4 would acquire low-budget films and release them under Kevin Smith’s SModcast Pictures banner.

The first pickup for the label is the wild high school comedy Bindlestiffs, directed by Andrew Edison, co-written by Luke Loftin and starring Loftin, Edison, John Karna and Will Fordyce. It premiered at Slamdance this past January. There the film, which features three teen virgins with ambitions to live out the plot to The Catcher in the Rye, won the Audience Award for Best Feature Narrative at Slamdance, and will play SXSW.
