UK-based distributor Cineflix Rights has signed a first-look deal with London-based October Films.
The deal gives Cineflix the global rights for all of the company’s programming for the next two years. Recent October productions include the documentaries World War II from Space for History Channel and Letting Go for the BBC; the crossover science/history series Back From The Dead for Channel 4 and National Geographic; factual entertainment series Rude Tube for Channel 4; and the popular science series You Have Been Warned for Discovery Channel.
In a statement, October Films managing director Denman Rooke said Cinelifx’s international scope suits the company’s ambitions.
“With international programming an increasingly important part of our productions, we know our relationship with our distributor is more important than ever,” he said. “We are looking forward to a productive partnership with Cineflix as a key part of our continuing growth and expansion.”
Cineflix has strategic partnerships with around 50 third-party producers, including LMNO Productions, Impossible Pictures, Windfall Films, Seven Network Australia and Blink Films.
