Reckziegel to remain prexy in North America
Alliance Films last month. Bryan Gliserman, former Odeon Films prexy who joined eOne in 2008, will serve as co-prexy of eOne Films Canada with Noah Segal, whose 15 years of experience in the international distribution biz includes his most recent position as executive vice-prexy at Alliance Films. Patrick Roy, who began his career at Alliance in 1994 and most recently served as the prexy and CEO of its Quebec film operation, will oversee the company’s Quebec biz as prexy of Les Films Seville and co-prexy of Les Films Christal alongside Christian Larouche. Seville is the leading distributor of film in Quebec and of Quebec films internationally through eOne Films International; Christal is an eOne subsidiary that specializes in Quebecois films and is co-managed by Larouche and eOne. Gliserman, Segal and Roy will report to Reckziegel. “eOne has built a strong international business from Canada and we are now even better positioned to support Canadian and Quebec talent and provide more filmmakers access to new markets and platforms and wider visibility both in Canada and internationally,” said Theroux. After eOne completed its acquisition of Alliance Films on Jan. 9, 2013, eOne Films Canada became the overwhelmingly dominant independent film distributor in the country. The company expects to make further leadership and structural announcement in the coming months.
