That is not to say that audiences have never heard of many of the major distributors like Sony Pictures Releasing and Buena Vista International (UK distributors for Disney) but, if the major Hollywood studios are renowned for anything, it is as producers of motion pictures rather than as their distributors. However, it is actually within the distribution sector of the ﬁlm industry where money is to be made and where power can be leveraged. As Vogel has suggested: Ownership of entertainment distribution capability is like ownership of a toll road or bridge.
1 Furthermore, previous studies of ﬁlm distribution have had a perhaps understandable, but nonetheless limited, tendency to focus on how Hollywood distributes its own products. Indeed, Dina Iordanova suggests: It is about time to acknowledge the new realities. A quarter of the world’s most commercially successful ﬁlms come from sources other than Hollywood; many are more proﬁtable and bring higher per screen averages than the studio blockbusters. Not only are many more peripheral ﬁlms being produced, many more of them are also seen and appreciated, due to the vitality of growing alternative channels of distribution.
Tartan Video USA went ﬁrst, with Palisades Media Group acquiring Tartan’s US back catalogue of 101 ﬁlms in May 2008 (Frater, 2008). The UK catalogue of over 400 ﬁlms was also taken over by Palisades some two months later (About Palisades Tartan, 2009). The company is now run out of the US and under the new name Palisades Tartan. The Palisades Tartan website suggests that the company will continue to be a theatrical and DVD distributor, and Chairman/CEO Vin Roberti suggested shortly after the creation of Palisades Tartan that they ‘will be aggressively ramping up future acquisitions’ with the aim of achieving a back catalogue of over 2,000 ﬁlms by 2010 (Swart, 2008).
