Possible Independent Film Distribution
Film 4 Entertainment One UK
Film 4 is a British company and our film
is British so we would be able to
showcase the British Talent, whether
that be the director, writer or actor. Film
4 aspires to be a leader of innovation in
the British Film Industry.
It offer’s a platform for British and
independent cinema on terrestrial
television by committing to showing
each one of film fours production films
on Channel 4 and Film 4. Investing
around £500,000 per film
Entertainment One is a British
distribution company , Bringing an
“Expertise in theatrical and home
It serves “as one of the premier names
in independent film distribution.”
Although this company is not one of the
‘Big 6’ it is a very popular distribution
company focusing on independent
films. It has led the independent sector,
with the largest number of Billboard-
charting titles so our film would qualify
for being distributed by E1 and would
Possible Mainstream (BIG 6) Distribution
Paramount pictures are a common
distributor of thriller films. They
would be a suitable distributor as
they have released films with a
similar genre to our own.
Also being one of the Big 6 it
ensures our film would be
distributed globally, not just aiming
at a British Audience. It would
enable us to showcase British
Talent on a global scale.
Universal pictures is one of the biggest
in the world due to the success of the
distributed films, I believe our film
would add to its vast list of successes.
Universal have successfully distributed
a range of thrillers.
Again our film would be distributed
globally and as Universal is such a big
American company, the reflection of
The Milwaukee Cannibal in our film
would prove popular to its home
Which of those institutions is most likely to
distribute my film...
Our film is likely to be aided by independent and mainstream
This is due to the fact that Our opening title sequence was
created on a low budget, with new upcoming actors. For these
reasons it would not immediately draw the attention of one of the
‘Big 6’ companies. It would more likely be produced with the aid
of Film 4 (Independent company) and then put forward to Film
Festivals like BFI’s London Film Festival. We would ensure it
doesnt only make appearances within the Uk However much like
another independent movie, Starred up, it could be shown at
Telluride in Colorado – Starred up later went on to be distributed
by a mainstream company. Our film is expected to be incredibly
popular at film festivals as it stars an extremely talented, up and
coming British actor – ‘One to watch.’ This alongside great
reviews and the help of Film 4 would begin to attract attention
from a ‘Big 6’ company. Our film is also based on a very infamous
American man (The Milwaukee Cannibal) and his events in which
were broadcasted on news channels around the world, therefore
people from all over the world would be interested in watching the
movie, so it should be distributed globally.
Again like Starred up, Our film is most likely to be distributed by
20th Century Fox, they watch Telluride Film Festival closely.
20th Century Fox
20th Century have distributed films that have the same serious,
real-life feel that ours does... Distributing 12 Years a Slave and
The Descendants. Whilst these films are not thrillers like ‘Scalpel,’
they have importance in reflecting real-life events and
experiences. If our film was not based on a real event then its
audience may purely be horror/thriller lovers, however our film is
uncovering past events and will involve the audience emotionally,
which 20th Century Films often do. Our film is not just a movie
which follows a bloody killer, filled with scenes of extreme tension,
gore and scares but it is incredibly thought-provoking. It puts you
into the mind of the killer, having the audience try and figure out
why he does some things within the film and connecting the
emotionally not only to the victims but also the killer.
Other mainstream companies often distribute less thought-
provoking films due to their repetitive ‘popular-styled’ nature
however 20th Century differs from that.
Having our film with this company means it can also participate in
huge award shows like the Bafta’s or the Grammy’s and can have
a bigger distributing budget with grand exposure via – Trailers,
DVD’’s, Tv Ads, Websites etc...
