StudioCanal and Radio-Canada have entered into a distribution deal for Canada.

Under the five- year deal, starting January 2014, Radio-Canada will distribute more than 1,400 films in French - comprising 1,200 French films and 200 Italian films - from the StudioCanal library, via DVD, Blu-ray, EST and VOD.

In addition, as national public broadcaster serving French Canada, Radio-Canada will feature many of these films on its own platforms.

The StudioCanal film library includes classics from directors such as Jean Luc Godard (Le Mépris, Pierrot le fou), Renoir (La grande illusion), Claude Sautet (Max et les ferrailleurs, César et Rosalie) and Jean-Pierre Melville (le Cercle Rouge, l’Armée des Ombres).
