Distribution deals[edit]

Since its debut in late 2013, Elevation has gathered a strong and growing list of feature films which they distribute theatrically in Canada.

Starting in late 2014, they have Canadian distribution rights to Black Bear Pictures, an American independent film company.[3]

In July 2014, Elevation signed a home distribution deal with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment to distribute their titles on Blu-ray and DVD in the majority of Canada, starting with the 2014 film Oculus.[4]

In August 2014, Elevation Pictures signed a services deal with Remstar Films, giving them exclusive rights to distribute their films in Quebec.[5]
