The table is ranked by top 10 distributors in 2013. Tables 9.3 to 9.5 show the top 10 distributors of specialised films, foreign language films, and UK independent films in 2013. The BFI considers films that do not sit easily within a mainstream commercial genre to be ‘specialised’ (see Chapter 5 for more information). A total of 446 specialised films were released in the UK in 2013 (just under two thirds of all releases), grossing £110 million (10% of the total box office). The top 10 distributors of these films released 121 specialised titles, which took £76 million at the box office (Table 9.3). The distributor with the highest box office share for specialised films was eOne Films with a total gross of £16 million. It released nine films in this category in 2013 including the third highest grossing specialised title, Quartet. Second in the list is 20th Century Fox, which released eight specialised titles including the second highest grossing specialised film, Lincoln. Pathé is third in the list with four releases including the top earning specialised film of the year, Philomena. StudioCanal and Curzon Film World released the highest number of specialised films in 2013, with 33 and 24 releases respectively.
