I am surprised that this company is still in business, and of all the audacity the owner of the company, Tanya York is coming out with a book titled "How to Make Money Making Movies". The real title should be "How I made Money by Ripping off all the Filmmakers who trusted me with Their Films"...
York Entertainment has been successfully distributing first time filmmaker's films for many years now. They have made a very successful industry out of it. Filmmakers come to them with their finished films, pay all up front costs, to get York to distribute, then once the filmmaker turns his/her Master materials over to York, they never hear from the company again. The filmmaker never receives any sales reports, never receives any money.
York Entertainment has been sued so many times, that they have a front company that is used to sign all the documents and contracts. The front company has no assets and is "sue" proof, so that York Entertainment is protected. They make a fortune on the hundreds of titles that they represent at sales markets all around the world, and not one of the filmmaker Producers EVER makes any money back. I have talked to numerous Producers who have been ripped off by York. They spent all their money to make their film, hand it over to York, get screwed royally, and dont even have enough money left over to take York to court. Tanya York must have no soul, and I dont know how she sleeps at night, knowing that she has contributed to the destruction of dreams and hopes of thousands of filmmakers around the world who have entrusted their films to her.
If you have a film that is being distributed by York, and you have had a similar experience, please add it below. Its important that other innocent people are not ripped off by this company. Please get the word out. This company needs to be put out of business.
