Welcome to Carlton Films!
Carlton Films is a Canadian feature and documentary film distributor. The company was established in Quebec in November 2004 with the aim of handling the theatrical release of Lakefront (2004) and the television and DVD sales of Women Without Wings (2002) which was produced by our sister company Cinegraphe Productions Inc.
