Greg Rubidge



Rubidge started his career at CIBC in commercial banking as an analyst and after two years he migrated in to entertainment, getting his start at the Canadian Film Centre. In 1995 he started an online games and interactive agency and sold it to a US venture firm in 2000.

In 2004 he started working in the then nascent world of VOD as Director of New Platforms at Corus Entertainment, launching Treehouse, YTV Anime and The Documentary Channel on Demand. In 2009 he founded Syndicado, a North American film and television distribution company.

The company has since become one of the top digital distributors of independent docs, arthouse features and factual TV series, releasing over 5000 hours of programming across all the major VOD platforms. In 2016 he co-founded the boutique world sales agency, Syndicado Film Sales, which now boasts a slate of award winning feature docs that have screened at Sundance, TIFF, Tribeca, Locarno, HotDocs and Karlovy Vary.

Today Rubidge overseas distribution and sales for feature films and factual TV series in the major English language markets across all rights.
