How long will it take to ship?

We thank everyone for their patience. The actual shipping time depends on the service you select at check out.

Is Ignite a new company?
Though the name Ignite Films might not be familiar to you, our story is decades old. In the early 1990s Ignite Films started acquiring prints to classic films in the hopes of being able to restore them. At the time care for older work was a relatively new concept and Ignite was on the ground floor. Invaders from Mars is our first home video release under our own brand. However, Ignite has a long history of B2B distribution to broadcasters, DVD distributors and film platforms. Our restored films have been presented at Cannes Classics and at many retrospectives and restoration festivals of leading archives and cinematheques the world over. Ignite is by no means a young company but our B2C brand is just getting started.

Will there be future releases? 
Stay tuned!
