‘Lily’s Driftwood Bay’ Animators Sixteen South launch Distribution Arm
10 Jul 2017 : Katie McNeice
Still, 'Lily's Driftwood Bay'
The award-winning Belfast-based studio has announced Gillian Calvert-Ridge will head up Sixteen South Rights as Head of Global Distribution.

In this role she will begin with a focus on the above mentioned ‘Lily’s Driftwood Bay’, just one of the studio’s in-house projects, in addition to upcoming titles currently in development.

The new arm does not affect distribution deals with other outfits which have been previously agreed, including Greetings Entertainment for Disney Junior EMEA series ‘Claude’ and WDR for ‘Wildwoods’, for which RTÉ was announced lead broadcaster last May.

The announcement follows the opening of Sixteen South’s new £1M animation studio this time last year, which boasts 7,500 sq ft in response to its increasing production slate.
