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.[1] In 1985, he became the British president of the American Film Marketing Association.[1] Three years later,[2] he started a venture called Majestic Films International, which handled the distribution of Dances with Wolves, Driving Miss Daisy and others.[1][2] Also during the late 1980s, he worked with Goldcrest Films and Carolco.[1]

East stayed at Majestic until 1995.[2] In 1996, after selling Majestic,[3] he teamed up with Nigel Sinclair as founder and co-chairman of InterMedia.[1][2] The two men went on to form Spitfire Pictures in 2003 (well after InterMedia merged with Mortiz Bormann's Pacifica),[1][2][3] and joined the staff of a revived Hammer Films in 2007.[1] Both Spitfire and Hammer fused into a new entity, Exclusive Media Group, in 2008.[1]
