Mark Slone Promoted at Entertainment One's Canadian Film Unit

The former Alliance Films exec will oversee domestic acquisitions and theatrical teams.

TORONTO -- Entertainment One has promoted Mark Slone to executive vp theatrical distribution, overseeing all Canadian acquisition and theatrical teams.

The move comes as the Canadian distributor continues to shake up its international film distribution efforts under Harold van Lier's international sales unit and Xavier Marchand's production division to secure multiterritory deals for Canadian films.

Slone, most recently senior vp acquisition, boarded eOne in 2013 as it acquired Alliance Films.

His promotion follows David Reckziegel, head of eOne's North American film business, leaving the Canadian producer and distributor at the end of May to launch his own media financing venture.

Canada's largest indie film distributor in April also launched Seville International as an indie sales division of eOne Films International, to be headed up by Anick Poirier.

Based in Toronto, Slone will report to eOne Films Canada president Bryan Gliserman.
