Distributors Corporation of America (DCA) was an American film distribution company which distributed 60 films in the US between 1952 and 1959. DCA distributed the 1956 re-releases of The Naked City (1948) and Brute Force (1947), both produced by Mark Hellinger and directed by Jules Dassin.

DCA also distributed I Am a Camera (1955), starring Julie Harris and Laurence Harvey. Because of the original script's treatment of abortion, the film ran into censorship from the Production Code.

Hal Roach took over the company in late 1958 although DCA president Fred Schwartz remained with the company.[1] Among the last films DCA distributed were Plan 9 from Outer Space (1957), Half Human (1958), The Strange World of Planet X (1958), and The Crawling Eye (1958).
