Lionsgate’s output agreements include StudioCanal in Germany, Nordisk in Scandinavia, Metropolitan Filmexport in France, Leone Film Group in Italy, Belga Films in Benelux, eOne in Spain and Canada, and Roadshow Films in Australia, as well as a joint venture distribution partnership with IDC in Latin America.
