Vista Group is the global leader in providing technology and data solutions for the film industry, encompassing a core group of brands that include Vista Cinema, Movio, Veezi, Numero, Maccs, Flicks, and Powster.

Its SaaS platforms have generated strong interest from clients, with Wallis Cinemas (Australia), Cineplex (Canada) and Everyman (United Kingdom) signed on to Vista Cloud. With a 50% global market share in the enterprise cinema software market, the post-pandemic swing back to in-person cinema-going coupled with a surplus of blockbuster films has produced increasing revenue for Vista Group’s clients, and by extension, Vista Group – this trend is set to continue.

As the industry moves forward, Vista Group remains focused on recognising and responding to evolving trends. Proactive innovation is a big part of this, with industry-leading products such as Vista Oneview recently launched to meet emerging customer needs for data-driven insights. Vista is now offering a permanent 4.5 day work week, following a successful trial in 2021, and is also dedicated to mitigating climate risks, with its first voluntary Climate-Related Financial Disclosures released in 2023.


“Our ambition is to continue to support and lead the digitisation of the film and cinema industry globally, supporting our clients to thrive within the markets they operate in.”
– Stuart Dickinson, CEO
