Guy East is a British film producer and sales agent, and the founder of Majestic Films International, InterMedia and Spitfire Pictures.
East attended the University of Exeter as a student of English and law. In 1985, he became the British president of the American Film Marketing Association. Three years later, he started a venture called Majestic Films International, which handled the distribution of Dances with Wolves, Driving Miss Daisy and others. Also during the late 1980s, he worked with Goldcrest Films and Carolco.
East stayed at Majestic until 1995. In 1996, after selling Majestic, he teamed up with Nigel Sinclair as founder and co-chairman of InterMedia. The two men went on to form Spitfire Pictures in 2003 (well after InterMedia merged with Mortiz Bormann's Pacifica), and joined the staff of a revived Hammer Films in 2007. Both Spitfire and Hammer fused into a new entity, Exclusive Media Group, in 2008.
