Kino International is a film and video distributor, founded by Bill Pence in 1977. Donald Krim bought Kino just months after its founding and served as president of the company until his death from cancer in 2011. Kino, based in New York City, specializes in art house films, such as low-budget current films, classic films from earlier periods in the history of cinema, and world cinema. Similar in many respects to The Criterion Collection, the home video releases by Kino are usually restored versions with substantial supplementary material.

Kino's theatrical arm handles theatrical distribution of much of the Lumière brothers and D.W. Griffith. Many of those were restored by David Shepard's Film Preservation Associates.[1]

In 2009, Kino International merged with Lorber HT Digital to form Kino Lorber.[2] Kino International remains that company's imprint for world cinema titles, as well as American independents, documentaries, international classics, and silent cinema. The other Kino Lorber imprints are Lorber Films, Alive Mind, and Knitting Factory Entertainment.

Films released by Kino International include:

Kino Lorber Studio Classics
