Volta Pictures first release, Vicky.
Following Element Pictures’ recent announcement that Fremantle had taken a majority stake in the company’s production business, Element Distribution, the long running distribution arm of the business founded by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe in 2007, has announced it will rebrand as Volta Pictures.

Guiney and Lowe will continue as sole shareholders and directors of Volta Pictures and the distribution team managing the business will remain unchanged under its Head of Distrbution, Karen O’Malley, with business proceeding as usual for the company’s partners and film titles.

To coincide with the announcement, Volta Pictures has launched the brand-new poster for the award-winning feature documentary VICKY, which will go on release in cinemas on Friday 7th October 2022. 

“We are pleased to announce that Vicky, the award winning new film documenting Vicky Phelan’s personal journey and her heroic work to uncover the Cervical Check scandal in Ireland will be our first release under Volta Pictures,” said O’Malley.

From director Sasha King (Akron), this powerful documentary was voted Best Irish Documentary by the Dublin Film Critics Circle at this year’s Dublin International Film Festival and was nominated for an Irish Council of Civil Liberties (ICCL) Human Rights Award at the festival.

In 2018 on the steps of The High Court, Vicky Phelan gave a now-infamous address where she exposed one of the worst women’s health scandals in Irish history, the cervical cancer debacle. VICKY is a profound and intimate journey into not only Vicky’s fight to expose the truth of what happened for all women but also her own personal fight to stay alive.  

Vicky is a Princess Pictures production produced by Sasha King, Bill Snodgrass, and Vicky Phelan with support from Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland.  The film is executive producered by Martina Niland, and Lesley McKimm for Screen Ireland. 

Vicky will go on release in Irish cinemas on Friday, 7th October 2022.
