Distributor Profile: Sony Pictures Classics

Sony Pictures Classics

New York, NY 10022


Formed in August 1994 as a new division within Sony Pictures Classics, SPC Large Format was created to produce, acquire and distribute Large Format films (IMAX, Iwerks, Showscan) for Sony. SPC, Large Format's debut release, WINGS OF COURAGE, premiered at the Sony IMAX Theatre in New York City in April 1995. As the first drama shot in IMAX® 3D, WINGS OF COURAGE changed the course of large format films forever and immediately established SPC Large Format as an industry leader. WINGS OF COURAGE was followed by ACROSS THE SEA OF TIME which premiered in October 1995 and cemented our commitment to films that are as entertaining as they are educational. SPC's next release, MARK TWAIN'S AMERICA, was released in 1998, and its most recent film, CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: JOURNEY OF MAN, premiered in 2000.
