FilmBuff announced a move of its
headquarters to Manhattan’s NoMad district today. The award-winning
full-service distribution company has also doubled its management team and
expanded its annual theatrical slate in partnering with major international
brands, including illy (“A Small Section of the World”) and Cole Haan (“American Dream Project”).

“I am proud of the company Janet and her team have built,” said John Sloss, founder of
Cinetic Media and co-founder of FilmBuff. “FilmBuff provides filmmakers with
the most collaborative, transparent, and profitable distribution experience
possible. This filmmaker-centric focus is at the heart of our law firm, Cinetic
and FilmBuff, and this expansion gives each company more room to grow and meet
the needs of our respective clients.”

FilmBuff now manages over 20 nationwide theatrical releases
annually. Earlier this year, the company also ramped up its international television sales efforts, with the appointment of Scott Kaplan, SVP of Global Sales, and expanded operational management by elevating Mickey Slevin, Head of Finance, to Chief Operations Officer. After the move to its new offices, FilmBuff will continue to build out its sales, marketing and technology teams.
