Hilary's career in film began in short film distribution at Ouat Media, before moving onto the Canadian Film Centre (CFC), working in development, administration and distribution. While at the CFC she contributed to an online film magazine, The Seventh Art, where she managed a Live Directors Series, which brought prominent directors to Toronto to screen and discuss their work.

To date Game Theory's catalogue includes over 50 titles released theatrically and on VOD in the Canadian marketplace, including last year's TIFF Platform Prize winner Riceboy Sleeps and TIFF 2023 titles Seagrass, In Flames, and Humanist Vampire Seeks Consenting Suicidal Person.
