Foley heading to October

Distribution veteran Jack Foley is ankling his post as head film buyer for Gotham-based City Cinemas to head up theatrical distribution for October Films, according to sources.

Though his exact title isn’t known, October is reportedly creating a post for Foley. Senior VP of theatrical distribution Michael Silberman, who heads up the company’s distribution efforts, will now likely report to Foley.

Neither Foley nor October execs could be reached for comment, but sources said he would stay on at City until a replacement could be found.

In his 1-1/2 years at City Cinemas, Foley has overseen the circuit’s push to replicate its successful Manhattan arthouse, the Angelika Film Center, in other cities.

Prior to joining City, Foley served as president of distribution at Miramax Films for about three years. Before that he was head of distribution at MGM/UA for six years.
