Here is a statement from the company:
After nine years of successful business, in which 380 films from the 1930s to 2010s were released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the home video label Twilight Time was highly acclaimed by the experienced Hollywood studio managers and filmmakers Brian Jamieson and the late one Nick Redman will not publish any more titles and we will cease operations this summer. A changing market, rising costs for title acquisitions and the death of long-time partner and company spokesman Nick Redman are the main reasons for the closure.
When it was launched in 2011, Twilight Time pioneered the concept of launching rare and distinctive limited-edition films of all genres with 3,000 units, available exclusively at two website destinations: Screen Archives Entertainment and later Twilight Time Movies. This allowed dedicated film fans to get physical copies of coveted titles that had no place in local stores. Nick aptly called the company Twilight Time because the concept of film as a physical commodity might have an expiration date sooner rather than later. Nick once said, “At the beginning, we never thought we would be there almost a decade before it was time for the sunset over the company.”
During this time, the Twilight Time catalog contained legendary films from the libraries of Twentieth Century Fox, Sony Pictures, MGM / United Artists, Universal Studios, Film 4, Protagonist Pictures, Toei Company and other companies and presented many Academy Award® and international ones award winning titles. Thanks to Nick Redman’s more than 30 years of work as an award-winning film music historian and conservator, most of the releases contain dubbed isolated music or music and effects tracks that provide a rare platform for the acclaimed and unsung composers so important to the filmmaking process. Many offerings also provided informative audio commentary tracks involving co-founder Redman and a variety of internationally known film historians who expertly contextualized and enhanced the viewing experience.
