We are honoured at Park Circus to represent the Woodfall Films library for home entertainment sales.
Founded in the late 50s by Tony Richardson, John Osborne and Harry Saltzman, Woodfall spearheaded the British New Wave by giving cinematic voice to the Angry Young Men; a group of artists who had previously disrupted the theatre and literary establishments with work that was uncompromising in its commitment to portraying the social and political realities of post-war Britain. In transferring this energy to the moving image, Woodfall ushered in a new style of realist filmmaking that would become embedded in the UK's national cinema and that continues to endure in modern British production.
Their formidable early reputation was forged by hard-hitting kitchen sink dramas like Look Back in Anger and A Taste of Honey, and by the mid-60s Woodfall's ambitions had grown in tandem with the scale and scope of their productions - a development that culminated in the release of the multi-Oscar winning historical farce Tom Jones.
Now, all of the titles in the Woodfall library are available to license in HD, with many available in remastered versions, ensuring their impact will be felt by generations of audiences to come.
