Pathé Productions Limited
“Since setting up Mister Smith Entertainment in 2012, Freeway has provided us with the highest level of guidance and expertise, alongside consistently robust and transparent services including collection account management. Our partnership with Freeway is pivotal in our aim to deliver high-quality mainstream feature films and filmmaker driven movies to the global market.
I think that at the heart of Freeway’s success is the fact that their senior management team have a really comprehensive knowledge of content holders’ rights and needs. We’ve always found them to be responsive, and quick to grasp our business needs for each title agreement.
That kind of understanding saves time and makes Freeway’s services something we come back to time and again, for speed and efficiency as well as for their exceptional professionalism and dedication.”
