U.S. remains the largest single market with a 30% market share. This does not always pertain to all titles. Non-English language titles rarely obtain such a share of the U.S. market and in fact, producers of non-English language films do not even factor in the U.S. as part of their projected revenues. However, the fact that a film has U.S. distribution still contributes to its value in the marketplace. Both filmmakers and international sales agents are always looking for the U.S. distributor who might take their films.
It is for that reason that this report exists. It will show which current U.S. distributors are buying what and from whom for the current year. Companies are linked to their own websites and titles are linked to Cinando. If Cinando is not appropriate or does not have the title, then titles will link to IMDbPro in order to assist professional research when more information is needed. Cineuropa.org will also be referenced when used. In theory, all of these online databases list rights by distributors though in fact, each in its own unique way is missing information or contains errors.
