Work Experience At Lionsgate, London

August 11, 2018 5:26 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

So, the school holiday season had now officially started and , having now completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Film Distribution with Birmingham City University, I wanted to continue my development within a real-world setting and what better way to do this than as a Runner at Lionsgate Films in London.

Lionsgate U.K. is the diversified U.K.-based filmed entertainment arm of Lionsgate (NYSE:LGF), a premier next generation global content leader with a diversified presence in motion picture production and distribution, television programming and syndication, home entertainment, international distribution and sales, branded channel platforms, interactive ventures and games, and location-based entertainment. The company (formerly Redbus Film Distribution) was acquired by Lionsgate in October 2005 and has since established a reputation in the U.K. as a leading producer and distributor and acquirer of commercially successful and critically acclaimed product, recently releasing the 6 time BAFTA and OSCAR winning “LA LA LAND”, the BAFTA and OSCAR winner “HACKSAW RIDGE, Luc Besson’s visionary “VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS” and Lone Scherfig’s “THEIR FINEST” (Source: LionsgateFilms)

The week was a real insight in how this market leader is structured and organised. It has given me the valuable experience that a textbook doesn’t give you – the real world experience. I also met some incredible, inspiring and creative people during my visit and I would, for those interested in film distribution and looking to further their experiences beyond the classroom, contact for more information.

Thank you Lionsgate for this invaluable experience.
