Is Summit Entertainment an entirely independent movie studio now releasing and distributing their own films and DVDs? I thought they were just a production company under Paramount

Yes, they are an independent studio with their own distribution now. There was some talk about Lionsgate looking to acquire them but nothing recent. Their product in Canada is distributed through E1 Entertainment.
