Working with new and established filmmakers alike, assisting from script development to distribution, the company has established itself as a specialist in uplifting feel-good dramas and elevated genre films. Recent successes include Edie and feel-good drama Love Sarah, which were both released theatrically worldwide, The Witch in the Window, an elevated genre festival favourite that sold on multi-territory deals worldwide, and most recently, last year’s Box Office hit June Again, which was nominated for four Academy Awards in Australia.
During his Masters, he undertook a number of assistant positions within sales and distribution companies including Alliance Media Partners, Altitude and Film Seekers during the European Film Market. Ethan has also worked and programmed at film festivals including BFI Future Film Festival and the London East Asia Film Festival, finding a real desire to connect audiences from around the world with great films.

Coupling knowledge of a wide range of films with an instinct for what works, he joined Film Seekers on a permanent basis as a Sales and Marketing Assistant before moving on to Sales and Acquisitions Coordinator where he handles sales in select territories and works across acquisitions and development for both the Film Seekers UK and the newly established European slates.
