AMC Licensing


AMC globally distributes and exploits films across all formats including digital, home entertainment and television.

Over the years, AMC has evolved into a massive aggregator of compelling African content, and now boasts an extraordinary library of thousands of the best Nollywood and African films, and hundreds of hours of award-winning African drama series, making it undisputedly the largest African content aggregator in the business. AMC continues to sign content agreements with various partners, and is also involved in movie distribution arrangements with top African movie rights-owners and film production houses.

In October 2018, it launched a production division, AMC Original Productions, AMCOP, to develop and produce original movies and TV series. AMC has since added hundreds of hours of exclusively-owned movies, series, reality and lifestyle shows to its continuously expanding library.

It is involved in licensing both acquired and exclusively-owned content for TV broadcast and in-flight entertainment use the world over. Clients have included Swedish media giant, Modern Times Group, Afrotainment Group in the USA, IFE Services UK, and Skyline IFE in the UK.
