Dent to head Curzon Artificial Eye

McQueen joins as DVD exec

LONDON — U.K. distrib-exhib Curzon Artificial Eye has tapped Louisa Dent as its managing director and Alan McQueen as a DVD acquisitions exec.

Dent, previously m.d. at UGC Films U.K., will join the company full-time from January. McQueen was formerly topper at U.K. indie distrib Downtown Pictures.

The moves are part of the further expansion of the company since the acquisition of Artificial Eye by Roger Wingate’s Act Entertainment Group and Philip Knatchbull’s media investment fund Knatchbull Communications Group from founders Pam and Andi Engel last year.

Curzon Artificial Eye, which operates a string of a upmarket theaters, is ramping up its acquisitions strategy to include more mainstream fare, such as the recently-announced pickup of Helen Hunt’s directorial debut “Then She Found Me.”
