SK Global is the newly-announced merged entity of Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Ivanhoe Pictures, focusing on premium content with worldwide reach and local market understanding. With operations in Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Beijing, the independent company is dedicated to developing, financing, and producing high quality, commercial content for motion picture, television, virtual reality, and digital media.
SK Global Entertainment chooses its projects with an eye toward the international marketplace, developing and financing intellectual properties both independently and in association with major film studios. SK Global Entertainment projects are released globally via domestic and international distribution partners and platforms.
Formed in 2016 by co-founders Sidney Kimmel and Robert Friedland, SK Global Entertainment evolves out of long-time independent content companies SKE and Ivanhoe Pictures, the latter of which was borne of the 20-year GreeneStreet Films. The combined entities have financed and produced more than 75 feature films and have a long history of working collaboratively with leading filmmakers and top-tier talent.
