Kino International, which has helped introduce American audiences to foreign filmmakers like Wong Kar-Wai and Michael Haneke, and Lorber HT Digital, which has recently handled such arthouse releases as Alexander Sokurov’s “The Sun,” said Wednesday that they had merged into a single company.

The new company, called Kino-Lorber Inc., will be run jointly by Kino founder Donald Krim and Richard Lorber, Lorber HT Digital’s chief executive.

The principals said the merger would make their single company "the biggest of the little guys."
