MipJunior 2014: Revolution Studios names Miramax as global TV and digital distributor

CANNES: The ongoing MipJunior at Palm Beach in Cannes, France is the hotspot for major announcements from world over. In one such development, Revolution Studios has announced its association with Miramax which will now manage the Studios’ global television and digital distribution licensing titles, including all titles from the recently acquired Morgan Creek international film library.


While the terms of the agreement have not been disclosed, the agreement expands the current alliance, under which Miramax has represented Revolution in the US since June 2012. Miramax will begin representing Revolution’s titles internationally as rights begin to revert back to Revolution, while Morgan Creek titles are immediately available internationally from Miramax.


“We are excited to take this next step in our relationship with Miramax, which has proven to be a formula for success on the domestic front,” announced Revolution chief executive officer Vince Totino.


Revolution COO Scott Hemming said, “The Miramax global sales team is among the most respected and creative in the industry and we look forward to working with them to broaden our diverse library worldwide. Miramax representing Revolution globally is the next natural step in continuing our collaboration of our already established and strong domestic foundation.”


Revolution titles represented by Miramax include more than 40 top tier Hollywood films such as: Black Hawk Down, America’s Sweethearts, 13 Going on 30, Maid in Manhattan, XXX and Daddy Day Care.


The Morgan Creek titles acquired by Revolution and now represented by Miramax include: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, True Romance, The Last of the Mohicans and Major League.


“Miramax is proud to expand its partnership with Revolution and we are excited to now represent the Revolution and Morgan Creek titles internationally. This fantastic collection of content is highly complementary to the Miramax catalog, providing us unique positioning within the international TV and digital landscape,” said Miramax executive VP worldwide TV sales Joe Patrick.


The Miramax global sales team has successfully brought hundreds of titles to existing and emerging platforms in nearly every country in the world, including free and premium linear TV, subscription video-on-demand and ad-supported video-on-demand. Miramax will now include the Revolution and Morgan Creek titles in their international offering, maximising distribution of these film catalogs around the world.
