Imperia Entertainment CEO Issues Letter of Update to Shareholders

MONTE-CARLO, MONACO--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Imperia Entertainment, Inc.'s (PINKSHEETS: IMPN) CEO has issued a letter to shareholders, mailed to its shareholders, as follows:

June 12, 2008

Dear Shareholders,

Imperia Entertainment has come a long way since I became CEO in January of this year. From a fledgling production company to a company with solid financing and corporate foundation with an emphasis on film production and distribution. We have succeeded in restructuring the company with an emphasis on shareholder investment growth, and have sealed the float and outstanding stock at current levels by agreement with our warrant holders, and lock-up agreements with large shareholders to promote price per share growth for the benefit of our shareholders.

Our company has had the good fortune of being invited to the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, where the festival has hosted a gala "avant-premiere" of our feature film, "Say It in Russian," attended by international stars, members of the press and the general public. The company and the cast of the film were also received by the Monaco government and H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco. Reuters and AP have distributed photos of our event throughout the world (, we have been featured in international magazines, and this publicity is a great impetus for the special platform screening we have planned for distributors in July.

Our model incorporates experienced management: me, with over 15 years running film production companies; George Ivakhnik, with investment banking, finance and merger and acquisitions experience, and an in-house securities legal department.

Alongside the traditional relationship based approach to wholesale film content distribution, the company is dedicated to keeping up with advances in technology and will store its library digitally, keeping up with the rapidly growing technological advances for digital film distribution and Internet to television distribution, including such technological possibilities as "white space" utilization. See,,,,

Our finance model is inspired by the post war Japanese "Keiretsu," utilized in large organizations such as Mitsubishi and Toyota. The IFDC Keiretsu is centered around one venture capital fund, Independent Film Development Corporation, which has the ongoing potential to lend management support and financial guarantees to its two portfolio companies: Signature Entertainment, LLC, a film distribution company with over 23 years management experience in acquisitions and marketing of independent film; and Imperia, which, in conjunction with Signature, is developing a multi-class $25 million film fund, Imperia Film Fund, LLP.

We hope that you will continue to grow and prosper with Imperia as we launch our company into the next level of film production and distribution.
