Buckingham to distrib for Film Four

Was managing director at Oasis Films

LONDON — Peter Buckingham has been appointed director of distribution for Film Four, Channel 4’s newly restructured film company.

Buckingham, who joins Film Four in July, was most recently managing director of Oasis Films and Cinemas.

He will replace Mick Southworth, who is returning to his own interests in the U.K. theatrical and video distribution business after two years helping C4 launch its own U.K. distribution arm.

Oasis Cinemas, which is part of Chris Blackwell’s Palm Pictures group, has promoted Clare Binns from director of programming to replace Buckingham as managing director.

Southworth is returning to his suspended position as a major shareholder of indie distrib Feature Film Co., as well as taking an active role in the development of video label Redemption.
