Michael Flint qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales in 1954. He became a partner in the law firm of Denton Hall & Burgin (now Denton Wilde Sapte) in 1960.  In 1967 he joined Paramount Pictures and became Vice-President in charge of European Production.  He resigned from Paramount in 1970 to become Chairman of London Screen Enterprises. Mr Flint returned to Denton Hall in 1972 where he remained until he retired from the partnership in 1994.  From 1989-1994 he was Chairman of Denton Hall.

British Screen Forum passes on its condolences to Michael’s family, loved ones, and all who knew him.
