Sandie Don Upped To Head Of Distribution At Hopscotch/eOne

Co-founder will focus on acquisition and distribution of local and international productions

LONDON — Entertainment One has upped co-founder Sandie Don to head of distribution for its Aussie film biz Hopscotch/eOne.

In the role, Don will oversee theatrical distribution for Hopscotch/eOne including acquisitions, sales and marketing.

Don, who previously held the role of marketing and acquisitions director, will continue to focus on both the acquisition and distribution of local and international productions as well as the lineup from eOne output partners including Summit and Lakeshore.

Don formed Hopscotch Films in 2002 with partners Troy Lum and Frank Cox. The outfit grew to become one of Australia’s leading indie distribs and was subsequently acquired by eOne in 2011.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Sandie for many years and I’m delighted to announce her promotion,” said Lum, managing director of Hopscotch/eOne. “Sandie has an unparalleled understanding of our market and outstanding relationships with the talented creative community in Australia. Her leadership and expertise have been absolutely intrustmental to the success (of) our business year after year.”

During her career, Don has spearheaded a raft of theatrical release campaigns including “The Sapphires,” “Source Code,” “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “The Wrestler.” Prior to joining Hopscotch, she headed marketing and publicity for Australian distribution company Dendy Films.

Don is based in eOne’s Sydney office and will continue to report to Lum, who oversees all film operations in Australia and New Zealand.
