Welcome to Parkland, a UK-based production, sales and distribution outfit.
Parkland Pictures is a UK based all-rights independent entertainment company that produces films, TV dramas, factual series and documentaries, as well as acquiring independently produced content for worldwide film sales representation and fully international distribution. Established in 1998, by founder and CEO, John Cairns, Parkland Pictures is dedicated to developing a slate of high-quality films and TV programmes for a highly targeted and defined audience, building a legacy across all channels and platforms, including frontline theatrical releasing.
At the Toronto Film Festival Sept 2018, Parkland launched its UK distribution arm, Parkland Entertainment, which was established in partnership with 30-year industry veteran Tom Stewart, formerly of Arrow Films and Metrodome Distribution. Parkland Entertainment’s mantra is ‘films for a targeted audience’, which effectively means identifying a genuinely engaged consumer base across all platforms, with theatrical releasing firmly in the driving seat. This could mean strength within a region, talent attached with a loyal fan-base, or simply content with a proven appeal to multi-platform and format purchasing audiences.
