Will Clarke shingle launches U.K. distribution operation

LONDON — Altitude Film Entertainment, the film company launched last year by Will Clarke, has moved into U.K. distribution with the launch of Altitude Film Distribution, which will be headed by Hamish Moseley.

Its initial release slate includes an untitled docu about British singer Amy Winehouse, from the team behind “Senna,” director Asif Kapadia and producer James Gay-Rees, both of whom have recently set up Playmaker Films.

Also in the lineup is Morgan Neville’s docu “20 Feet From Stardom,” a crowd-pleasing tribute to backup vocalists. The film, which received its world premiere at Sundance, grossed $4.7 million at the U.S. box office, where it has become the most successful docu of this year.

Altitude will also release “The Loch,” a character-driven horror thriller co-produced by Altitude with James Watkins, and co-written by Watkins with Simon Duric, who will also direct. The pic is skedded to shoot next year, and will star Peter Mullan.

Altitude Film Entertainment, headed up by Clarke as chairman and joint-CEO with Andy Mayson, now comprises Altitude Film Production, Altitude Film Sales and Altitude Film Distribution.

Clarke said, “When we set up Altitude a year ago we were looking to set up a British business that could evolve and expand. As a producer we wanted to create a home for the most talented filmmakers in the world, and are proud to have moved four films into production, developed partnerships with British and international filmmakers, and brought 18 films to the market for international sales. The time is now right for us to take the next step and move into distribution.

“We are going to the international marketplace to source a substantial number of films for U.K. distribution announcing our first two acquired titles today, as well as films from our own production slate.”
