Fieldfisher acted for Scandinavia's AB Svensk Filmindustri on its strategic alliance with Studiocanal.
Svensk Filmindustri was founded in 1919. Being one of the oldest and most respected film companies in the world, Svensk has earned a well-deserved reputation for producing some of the best-known films and filmmakers in the history of cinema.
As part of this alliance, Studiocanal signed an output deal with Svensk giving the it all distribution rights to Studiocanal films – such as “Paddington,” “Macbeth” “Legend” and “Bigger Splash” – on the Nordic market (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland), as well as digital rights to Studiocanal catalogue titles. The deal also allows the two players to join forces on the production of English-language Nordic feature films and TV-series derived from SF’s properties and aimed at the international market.
The Fieldfisher team was led by partner and Head of TMT Tim Johnson, assisted by associates Melissa Fish and Vicky Reinhardt.
