STUDIOCANAL HOME ENTERTAINMENT GERMANY AWARDED “RENTAL DISTRIBUTOR OF THE YEAR”
It is a great success for STUDIOCANAL. The German home entertainment division has been awarded “Rental distributor of the year” for their outstanding success in 2011. The price is awarded by the trade magazine VideoMarkt and a jury of selected home video merchants.

In fact, STUDIOCANAL’s video releases for “The Mechanic”, “The Next Three Days”, “Unknown Identity” and “The Tourist” (the latter wholly financed by STUDIOCANAL’s international production arm) all took top ten spots in the rental video charts. No other studio did better.
STUDIOCANAL is also the first independent studio ever to take home the award since it was established in 1991. In terms of market share, STUDIOCANAL came in third with a market share of 10% behind Sony Pictures and Warner.
