Alliance Films (formerly Alliance Films Releasing) is a major motion picture distribution/production company which serves Canada, the United Kingdom, and Spain. Formally known as Motion Picture Distribution LP, it was re branded and relaunched in 2007 due to the collapse of its preceding company, Alliance Atlantis, which was sold off piece by piece to CanWest Global, GS Capital Partners, along with several other smaller companies. Société générale de financement du Québec, an investment agency of the provincial government, owns 51% of the voting shares of the company and 38.5% of the equity. GS Capital owns the remainder of the company.

Distribution

It distributed & Produced the libraries of:

*"Focus Features"
*"Rogue Pictures"
*"The Weinstein Company"
*"Dimension Films"
*"Miramax Films"
*"Lionsgate Entertainment"
*"New Line Cinema"
*"Summit Entertainment"
*"New Line Cinema" (until late 2008)
*"Overture Films"
*"Yari Film Group"
*"Fine Line Features"
*"Picturehouse (company)"

NOTE: The Company was and continued to be distributed by Universal Studios Home Entertainment in the future & CIC Video in the past.

Theatre Operations

In partnership with Cineplex Entertainment, this unit also operates Alliance Atlantis Cinemas, owner of two Toronto-area theatres. During the MPD era, all materials relating to Alliance Atlantis-distributed films contained a disclaimer stating that Alliance Atlantis was "an indirect limited partner of Motion Picture Distribution LP, not a general partner". However, in fact, the company controlled the general partner of the partnership, and hence effectively controlled the distribution unit itself.

Production

Recently, Alliance Films has begun to produce film projects in moderation. They were responsible for co-producing the 2008 teen slasher "Prom Night" with Screen Gems and Original Film . They are also producing and distributing the upcoming war drama "Passchendaele".
