Hanway Films



About Us


HanWay Films was named after 24 Hanway Street in London’s Soho, where it still has its home. There in 1998, producer Jeremy Thomas founded an international sales company centred on filmmakers.

Today, HanWay continues to offer the full package, arranging financing, sales, marketing and distribution. HanWay works with visionary filmmakers and exciting new voices to launch commercial and critical success stories, globally. Above all, our team is passionate about movies.

Our HanWay Select division represents a library of more than 550 films available to license across the world, a vast collection of beloved classics, award winners, critically acclaimed and commercial hits.

HanWay’s library represents the very best in filmmaking talent, including films by Bernardo Bertolucci, David Cronenberg, Stephen Frears, Jean Luc Godard, Derek Jarman, Takeshi Kitano, Steve McQueen, Takashi Miike, Philip Noyce, Sarah Polley, Sally Potter, Lone Scherfig, Julien Temple and Wim Wenders.
