Vertigo Releasing is an all rights UK Film Distribution Company that specialises in maximising the profiles and audiences for independent film. It was launched in 2014 by its CEO, Rupert Preston.

Vertigo Releasing has acquired and released hundreds of films into the marketplace. To ensure the success of a release, identifying the audience is all important, followed by a proactive and innovative marketing, publicity and sales campaign.

We’re delighted to have worked with some incredible directors, helping them to launch their careers.

This includes BAFTA and BIFA nominated Philip Barantini (Boiling Point, Villain), Kitty Green (The Assistant), Jennifer Kent (The Nightingale), Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post), BAFTA and BIFA winner Babak Anvari (Under The Shadow), Academy AwardⓇ winner Taika Waititi (Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), BAFTA nominee and BIFA winner Gareth Edwards (Monsters), BAFTA nominee Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson), BAFTA-nominated Johnny Harris and Thomas Napper (Jawbone).

We’re dedicated supporters of female filmmakers, having released the debut features of Prano Bailey-Bond (BIFA nominated for Censor), Channing Godfrey Peoples (Miss Juneteenth), Coralie Fargeat (Revenge), Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenage Girl), and Charlotte Colbert‘s debut, She Will, In 2019 Vertigo expanded internationally and set up a partnership with Rialto Films in Australia and New Zealand.
