The rights to screen movies on commercial airlines are generally administered
directly by the major Hollywood studios and US based specialists. However, Roadshow Films, and other local independent
distributors frequently secure airline rights when they purchase films for Australasian distribution. Roadshow has been a major supplier of content to airlines within Australia & New Zealand
and also sometimes distributes airline rights to Australian films
Roadshow greatly appreciates the continued support of all our airline clients, particularly when it comes to our Australian content. In recent years Roadshow has handled Aussie fare as varied as Bran Nue Dae, Mao’s Last Dancer, I Love You Too, Beautiful Kate and Red Dog. Coming up we have Kath & Kimderella and Goddess.
Roadshow also enjoys a
close relationship with Warner Bros, particularly when it comes to movies
produced by our very own Village Roadshow Pictures, such as the Matrix and Ocean’s Trilogies, Happy Feet 1 & 2, Miss Congeniality, Gran Torino, Sherlock Holmes 1 & 2, Sex & The City 2, Cats & Dogs, Legend Of The Guardian and Life As We Know It.
Roadshow distributes these titles in Australia and New Zealand, including airline rights.
In 2012 and the early part of 2013, we have an extraordinary list of high
profile and niche content to satisfy all travellers. Particularly look out for The Lucky One, Magic Mike, Dark Shadows, Gangster Squad and The Great Gatsby.
