eOne pacts with Remstar in Canada

Distrib handles Gallic, specialty fare

TORONTO — eOne Films Canada has inked a three-year distribution pact with film and TV distributor and production company Remstar Films, it was announced Wednesday morning.

The agreement, which is effectively immediately, covers rights in all media in Canada except theatrical, VOD and French-language TV rights in Quebec, which are still handled by Remstar, a division of Groupe Remstar, which includes new Quebec TV player V.

In the past 12 years, Remstar has acquired such prestige French-language titles as “Mesrine” and award-winning features like “The Wrestler.”

“Remstar has built a very solid business through great leadership and products,” commented eOne Films Canada prexy Bryan Gliserman in a statement. “We’re looking forward to collaborating with them to offer their product throughout Canada.”

Remstar co-prexy and CEO Maxime Remillard added that eOne is the ideal partner to boost the company’s strategy to broadcast and distribute quality Canadian and international content. “With eOne’s proven track record we’re eager to now offer our quality features to a coast-to-coast audience,” Remillard said.
