In addition to international distribution, ro*co has opened a new educational distribution division - ro*co films educational, and its production arm has partnered with 1492 Pictures to identify documentaries for adaptation into feature films. In the Fall of 2012, ro*co will launch the worldwide online distribution of WE ARE LEGION, as a newly sanctioned iTunes distributor. The entire collection will be made available on iTunes thanks to the generosity of The Bertha Foundation.
