Bryan Gliserman and Noah Segal will oversee eOne Films Canada, including the former Alliance films teams, as co-presidents.

As President of Les Films Seville, Patrick Roy will oversee Quebec operations, and also serve as co-president of Les Films Christal, alongside Christian Larouche.

“eOne has built a strong international business from Canada and we are now even better positioned to support Canadian and Québec talent and provide more filmmakers access to new markets and platforms and wider visibility both in Canada and internationally,” said Théroux in a statement.


Reckziegel co-founded Seville Entertainment and its subsidiary Les Films Seville in 1999 with John Hamilton. eOne in 2007 acquired Seville, and Reckziegel became president of Les Films Seville and co-president of eOne Films Canada. In 2009, he also became president of eOne subsidiary Les Films Christal.

Gliserman joined eOne in 2008 as co-president of eOne Films Canada. Segal takes on his role having previously served as EVP of Alliance Films.

Roy began his career at Alliance Films in 1994, and continued in the ranks to become president and CEO of the company’s Quebec film operation, Alliance Vivafilm.
