// What We Do

Vertigo Releasing is an all rights UK Film Distribution Company that specialises in maximising the profiles and audiences for independent film.

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 have won multiple awards for our innovative campaigns for films such as Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Springbreakers, Horrid Henry, Streetdance, Bronson, Top Cat the Movie, The Time of Their Lives and Monsters, and we are committed to pushing and breaking the most important part of film: the talent.

We’re delighted to have worked with some incredible directors and helping to launch their careers, such as the BAFTA and BIFA winning Babak Anvari (Under The Shadow), Taika Waititi (Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), Gareth Edwards (Monsters), Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson), BAFTA-nominated Johnny Harris and Thomas Napper (Jawbone). This year’s films include Coralie Fargeat‘s debut feature Revenge and the sequel to 2016’s smash hit The Intent, The Intent 2: The Come Up, working with the writer and director team of Femi Oyeniran and Nicky ‘Slimting’ Walker.

// Championing Talent

At Vertigo Releasing we’re passionate about new talent and have a wonderful track record of unearthing brilliant directors, writers and actors. The production and release of Bronson launched director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) and star Tom Hardy (Dark Knight Rises) into the mainstream. Gareth Edwards’ first film Monsters set him on the path to direct Godzilla and Star Wars: Rogue One. We have also released the first films of some of the best emerging directors of the last ten years including Jeff Nichols, Babak Anvari, Colin Trevorrow, Veronica Seidl & Severin Fiala and Marielle Heller.
