ADV Films UK Switches from US-Run Office to UK Partner

posted on by Egan Loo
During transition, 12 titles are placed on hiatus in UK while more are on warehouse sale

ADV Films has notified its retail distributors in the United Kingdom that it is "transitioning its UK operations from a US-run office outsourcing to retail partners, to a partnership with a yet-to-be-named local home entertainment group." Funimation is already running a similar arrangement in which it partners with a British firm (Revelation Films) to distribute its titles in the United Kingdom — thus removing the need for its own office in the country. During ADV Films's ongoing negotiations for a Brititsh partner, the sales and distribution of the following titles are being placed on hiatus in the United Kingdom:

ADV Films UK is also running a warehouse sale of many of its other titles:

Notably, the license for Colorful, Dai-Guard, Excel Saga, and You're Under Arrest are said to be expiring at the end of January.
