UK company acquires Woodfall Library which includes titles such as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Tom Jones and A Taste of Honey.
Park Circus has acquired the Woodfall Library of classic British films.
Woodfall was the British production company founded by Tony Richardson, playwright John Osborne and producer Harry Saltzman.
The library includes such revered British films as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Tom Jones, Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and A Taste of Honey.
“We will now represent internationally for theatrical licensing the Woodfall Films Library,” said Park Circus exec Jack Bell. “We will be working to make the films available to cinemas and film festivals.”
Most of the titles are expected to be re-released in a new digital format.
“That is one of the key things Park Circus has been behind, making films available digitally. That has allows cinemas to show classic films more. Woodfall Films will be a part of that now.”
Glasgow-based Park Circus has several other titles in Cannes Classics, among them the 4K restoration of Orson Welles’ The Lady From Shanghai and The Usual Suspects, receiving a special screening to mark its 20th anniversary.
