Rambo, Terminator, The Pianist and Mulholland Drive–you might have heard of them. These titles are just a small sliver of the Hollywood heavyweight films included in Studiocanal's vast library.

Studiocanal, a subsidiary of the CANAL+ Group, is one of Europe's leading film production companies that also specializes in the acquisition, distribution and sales of international feature films and television series. The Studiocanal catalog includes more than 5,500 original titles that span more than 60 countries.

What's more, Studiocanal is the first European studio that directly releases its film and television titles to the U.K., France, Germany and Australia/New Zealand.

Though it is a dominant force throughout the world, Studiocanal's position as a European mainstay is upheld by its unwavering focus on the region.

"Our DNA is to enhance European creativity and quality, and export it throughout the world," says Valérie Rolandez-Barrios, vice president, IP licensing and partnerships, Studiocanal. "We are part of the Vivendi group that is a major 360-degree player with Havas, Universal Music Group, Gameloft, Copyrights Group (Paddington), and more recently, acquired the Editis publishing group, which allows us to offer a broad spectrum of opportunities to our partners."
