Swedish distribution company NonStop Entertainment has extended its long-term distribution agreement for theatrical releases and video in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland with leading pan-Scandinavian distributor Sandrew Metronome International. The agreement is set for another three years from January 1st 2003.

"Sandrew Metronome is very pleased to continue the co-operation with NonStop Entertainment. It is a fruitful collaboration and very profitable for both companies", said Bertil Sandgren, Managing Director of Sandrew Metronome International.

The films, including Lynne Ramsay's Morvern Callar, Julio Medem's Sex and Lucia, Paul Greengrass' Bloody Sunday and Ken Loach's Sweet Sixteen, will premiere across Scandinavia during winter 2002-03.
