New Colombia Resources Inc. Announces California Based Media Production Company, Set To Feature Their Medical Marijuana Joint Venture 'Sannabis' And Potential Coca Leaf Operations In Upcoming Documentary
BARRANQUILLA, Colombia, November 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New Colombia Resources, Inc.(OTC: NEWC) (the "Company"), a U.S. listed Colombian resource company with premium metallurgical coal and medical marijuana assets, is pleased to announce they will be featured in an upcoming documentary on the country's changing beliefs of the cultivation of medicinal marijuana and coca. Sannabis, the company's medical marijuana joint venture, with the help of New Colombia President John Campo, will host a film crew at their Cauca region's collective farms. These areas have the cooperation from its local population, and government to medically produce products that have known positive medicinal uses. New Colombia Resources believes this documentary will enhance product sales in Colombia and abroad. Strategik Media, based in San Francisco, CA will bring a small film crew to interview patients, growers, and others connected to this industry, to get a glimpse of Colombia's complicated, and constantly changing environment. These four filmmakers have dedicated their time, resources and personal finances to fund this project, in the hopes of breaking mainstream stereotypes of this once deadly multi-billion-dollar drug market. Although Sannabis is primarily a medical marijuana producer, New Colombia Resources is also initiating a dive into medicinal and industrial coca production which is where the area of focus will be on. Since the coca plant has historically been used for physical ailments by many indigenous groups, (who have also been aligned with the FARC), Strategik Media feels that it's the right time to get this story. The Coca Cola Company (NYSE: KO) still uses coca leaf extract in their products. New Colombia believes many food products and medicines can be produced with the coca leaf that can only be grown in Andean nations. This independent video production company, which was founded in 2008, has provided its services to film commercials, social events, short films and documentaries. Strategik Media produces an online YouTube Channel called 'SMS Show' with over 6 million views worldwide, and over 10,000 subscribers. This venture is something its founder James Martinez, (who will be Co-Directing with colleague and Producer Juan Ruiz), has always had a passion for. The film will be entered into local and national film festivals, with the hopes of gaining larger notoriety. The main objective of this project is to tell this story, while the conversation about Colombia is still happening around the world, thanks to popular shows like "Narcos."

Additionally, New Colombia will be providing updates on the advancements on their joint venture to apply for an orphan drug designation with the FDA for a cannabinoid medication. The Company is also working on getting their Form 10K audited report filed with the SEC as soon as possible.
