Granada International signs distribution deal with Films Of Record

Leading distributor Granada International has inked a deal with award-winning producer Films of Record to distribute four of its brand new documentaries worldwide.
Mark Reynolds, Head of Factual at Granada International, commented: "We are very pleased to be working with Films of Record, one of the UK's most respected documentary producers. Whilst all of the four documentaries we are distributing on their behalf feature life in the UK as a backdrop, each of them focuses on a distinctive community's challenges and triumphs giving the stories universal appeal."
