ASGE FILM & TELEVISION HOME OF VALUES-DRIVEN CONTENT
ASGE FILM & TELEVISION (ASGFT) is the Faith, Family and values-driven media content division of ASG Entertainment. ASGFT endeavors to provide socially responsible film and television entertainment to the public. ASGFT will not only develop and produce its own proprietary, media content but will also consider providing its services to select producers and production companies. These services can include production capital for selected projects, distribution and marketing services (digital distribution). ASGFT will take advantage of the various Federal and State Tax Incentives that are available for film and television – presently most of our films will be produced in Louisiana and Georgia.
ASG FILMS (ASGF) has completed and delivered its feature film BorderCross to its distributors and have arranged for domestic and worldwide distribution with a formal release date of December 5, 2017. The film will be marketed through a combination of planned, localized charitable and media events in conjunction with various notable national and international distributors. We are particularly flattered that we have been chosen by Walmart as one of its 24 films that are purchased on an annual basis. Walmart has a corporate foundation that works to combat human trafficking and selected our film at the Berlin Film Festival this past winter. Our film will be available in an estimated 3200 Walmart stores starting December 5 and over the course of 2018 we will be able to see the film on various SVOD, VOD platforms, i.e. Netflix as well as Redbox and Family rental stores (700 stores in the heartland). We will be marketing the film and soundtrack on many social media platforms. We have found in many cases that churches and other non-profit institutions that are also involved in combating human trafficking are amenable and pleased with the outcome of using films as a means of bringing awareness to this horrific crime. ASGFT’s distribution model also includes the concurrent marketing of the BorderCross soundtrack, which is a combination of very popular, past/present, emerging, domestic and international artists as well as original scoring. The soundtrack is compiled by our Music Supervisor Ronnie King, whose impressive bio you can read here. To learn more about BorderCross the Movie please click here or on the poster above.
ASG Television (ASGT) has created, developed and recently completed the story Bible for its proposed proprietary family television show currently entitled Eight Flags.

ASGT has entered into a Joint Venture Agreement with Global Genesis Group for the further development, financing, completion and broadcasting of the television show. ASG Television has also received a preliminary financing commitment from Westbrook Capital for the financing of Eight Flags.
