Entertainment One Films
Entertainment One Films is a Canadian distribution company first founded in 1973. Being a record label un till 2005, the firm starts distribution. Entertainment One put small, independent films onto screens- theatres, digital , DVD and TV. The exhibition from the firm allows production teams to market and sell their films. Entertainment One has worked on The Walking Dead, having worked in the horror genre. They are known for being the largest independent, multi-territory distributor. We thought that this would be a successful firm to distribute our films due to its wide range of exhibition options. We wanted an independent distribution company due to mainstream firms wanting films that are easier to sell, films that can be trusted to be invested in and create profit. Mainstream films are films that have minimised risk, in contrast to independent films.
We thought that for 'The Book' the exhibition of the film should be a straight to DVD release to its niche genre and narrative. We believe that from this the film would in long term create profit, instead of having a wide release like most conventional mainstream films. We additionally thought we could use Entertainment one to exhibit our film at films festivals, a conventional way for independent films to market their films. Films festivals such as the London Film Festival (London Film Festival), allowing for our niche audience to see the film and advertise it through word of mouth.
Entertainment one is additionally a media conglomerate allowing for our film to gain partnerships with other Entertainment One departments. We can advertise our film through their separate departments for example their Television sector, spreading the marketing of the film.
