Is it the production companies duty to find theright distributor depending on certain factors of the film e.g. The distributorspreferred genre.The distributor we should use is Hammer Films, a UK based distributor whospecialises in thrillers and horrors whilst embracing its sub genre. Hammer filmshas recently paired with Warner Bros. A well established American distributorwhich will allow our film to reach a wider audience.
