John Hamilton exits Seville Pictures
To launch his shingle, Hidden Agenda, in time for CannesTORONTO -- Veteran Canadian movie distributor John Hamilton has left Seville Pictures to launch his own production/distribution shingle, Hidden Agenda, in time for Cannes.
Hamilton and David Reckziegel co-founded Montreal-based Seville in 1999 and grew the niche distributor before it was acquired in 2007 by local DVD distributor E1 Entertainment as part of a move into Canadian film releasing.
As he sets out on his own, Hamilton has a first look deal with E1 Entertainment for Canadian and worldwide rights for all Hidden Agenda film titles.
E1 will also release Hidden Agenda films outside of Canada through its expanding international distribution network.
Hamilton will unveil his upcoming film slate at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
