Devine Entertainment Releases CEO Letter to Shareholders Recapping Past Year's Accomplishments

    Letter Outlines Recent Financial Growth and Strategic Measures for
    Continued Progress in Coming Year

    TORONTO, Dec. 14 /CNW/ - Devine Entertainment Corporation (OTCBB:DVNNF),
seeking to capitalize on the burgeoning global demand for high quality film
and television content, has announced the release of a Letter to Shareholders
from David Devine, President and Chief Executive Officer. The text of the
letter follows.

    To Devine Shareholders,

    With 2007 coming to a close, I wanted to take a few moments to express my
appreciation for your past and current support for Devine Entertainment as we
continue in our mission to produce and distribute award-winning film,
television and home entertainment content. It has been a rewarding year for
all of us at Devine, and we have been gratified to see our strategies result
in numerous important business achievements, and strengthened our Company's
foundation for further progress in the coming year.
    Here are a few of the milestone events that have marked the success of
Devine's business and creative initiatives during the last year.

    -   In Q3, we were proud to report substantial revenue and earnings
        growth, with our operations generating revenues of $5.6 million for
        the first nine months of 2007, a 1,550% increase over the same period
        last year. In the Q3 of 2007, we achieved positive earnings, gaining
        $.01 per share.
    -   Our first primetime television miniseries, "Across the River to Motor
        City," premiered on November 22 to critical acclaim and strong
        audience ratings, a notable achievement for Devine's first venture
        into the adult age demographic marketplace. At the same time, our
        family, children's and educational film library continues to grow in
    -   We expanded our international sales and distribution agreement with
        Carrere Group of France to include marketing "Across the River to
        Motor City" in France and French-speaking territories, as well as to
        distribute other Devine content globally outside North America.
    -   To address technology transformations in the entertainment industry,
        we formed the Devine Digital Content Group to accelerate revenues in
        the burgeoning market for online distribution of entertainment
        content, including video-on-demand (VOD), wireless and other new
        electronic distribution channels.
    -   Devine listed for trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange - the
        largest exchange in Europe and the third-largest worldwide - to help
        raise our exposure in the large and important European finance and
        investment community. Additionally, last month I undertook a multi-
        city road show to meet personally with investment professionals based
        in the United Kingdom, Switzerland and elsewhere.
    -   We executed a far-reaching digital distribution agreement with
        NetMovies Inc. to make Devine's film content available for sale and
        download on demand directly to consumers via the Internet. NetMovies
        is 34% owned by Blockbuster Inc. and its founder and Chairman is John
        Fanning, who was also founding Chairman and CEO of the music download
        pioneering company Napster Inc.
    -   We announced an updated valuation of our film and television library
        showings its estimated value increasing to $10 million, or $.20 -
        $.25 per share.

    We believe our work to create and distribute high-quality film,
television and home entertainment content has positioned us for continued
growth in the months and years ahead. A close analysis of Devine shows a
company that, in our opinion, is significantly undervalued today. Between the
value of our library assets and that of current operations we believe Devine
should be appropriately valued now at approximately $.50 per share, though the
addition of anticipated operations could further increase that projected
shareholder value.
    Devine's business plan has already stood the test of the marketplace.
With your ongoing support and continued investments, we anticipate the coming
year will be our most exciting yet.

    Best Regards,
    David Devine
    Chief Executive Officer
