Boyle out at Mayfair

One of the British film industry’s longest-running partnerships is breaking up after 21 years, with the news that Anne Boyle is vacating her post as acquisitions director of indie distrib Mayfair Entertainment.

Boyle and Mayfair managing director John Hogarth have worked as a team since 1972, starting at Hemdale and then at EMI Film Distributors, before they set up their own company Enterprise in 1977.

In 1989 they formed Hobo, which became part of the Mayfair group in 1991.

Boyle is leaving for a job outside the film industry and will not be replaced. Hogarth will take over sole responsibility for acquisitions. He describes the parting as “very amicable,” but added, “It’s going to be a hell of a wrench for me after over 20 years.”
