Mantervention is an independent film that was speculatively produced in 2013 by Scatena & Rosner Films. In January 2014 at the Sundance Film Festival, Vision Films picked up the sales and distribution rights for the picture.[3]


Mantervention premiered at TCL Chinese Theater on July 17, 2014.[4] It was released on September 5, 2014, in select theaters in the United States and through video on demand.[2][5][6] The film was initially released across the U.S. on digital cable video-on-demand platforms including Comcast, DirecTV, Xfinity, Cox, Time Warner Cable, Charter Communications, and Mediacom. The only U.S. domestic cable provider to not pick up Mantervention was U-Verse. The film is also available on iTunes,, Best Buy, Hulu, Vudu, and Walmart.[7][8][9]


Scatena & Rosner Films executed a marketing campaign targeting the college demographic, and also included a limited theatrical release in numerous college markets including University of Alabama, Florida State University, University of Florida, Georgia Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, and Arizona State University. The campaign employed local street teams, cross-promotions with local restaurants and companies, and interviews and press exposure within the local communities. The campaign was well received in all markets, and led to positive reviews and increased viewership.[10][11][12][13]


Mantervention won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at the 2014 Bel Air Film Festival.[13]
