Arclight Shines on Hollywood Classics

Beijing rep to handle Asian sales of massive library

HONG KONG – Arclight Films, the Sydney and Los Angeles-based sales and finance company, has picked up sales rights to the massive Hollywood Classics library across much of Asia.

Arclight will handle TV and new media rights in Asia, excluding Japan, but including China, where online video platforms are growing strongly.

The portfolio will be operated from Arclight’s new Beijing office and by Elliot Tong who joined the company last week.

Owned by the UK’s Metrodome group since 2011, Hollywood Classics represents rights to library titles from Universal Studios, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros. and MGM, and independents including Alberto Grimaldi, Ignite Films and British Screen Finance (British Film Institute). It has other agency relationships in Europe, the US and Japan.

Its titles include classics “Singin’ in the Rain” (pictured) and “12 Angry Men,” as well as more recent films “Miller’s Crossing,” “Casino” and “8 Mile.”

“I’m extremely fortunate to be working with John Ramchandani and the Hollywood Classics team as their Asian TV and new media representative,” said Tong in a statement. “With the support of the Arclight Films and Easternlight libraries, I’m confident this will be a successful, longstanding relationship.”
