    Our Daily ISA (International Sales Agent): Bleiberg Entertainment and its genre label Compound B

    I asked Roman Kopelevich, chief of sales for Ehud Bleiberg's company to send me information on the company which stands out as a U.S. based company which produces and sells quality films both in U.S. and in Israel. Producer Ehud Bleiberg launched Beverly Hills-based production and international sales company Bleiberg Entertainment in September 2005 after 12 years as Chairman & CEO of another international production, distribution and sales company he co-founded in 1993. At that time when he and his partner arrived in L.A. from Israel, the film community was curious to know how the "new Israelis" would fit in. Others had come and gone, leav...

    U.S. Distributors are Popping Up Like Mushrooms - Olive Films

    Farhad Arshad's long established Olive Films, a well respected home video company, has ramped up theatrically because John Tilley, the veteran distributor whose Cinevista brought Almodovar to the U.S. in the 80s, in April of 2010 took a risk and left Strand where he was head of home video for a decade. John has extensive and diverse experience as a domestic distributor, marketer, and licensor of domestic and international independent feature films and documentaries. As Executive Vice President for Acquisitions and Theatrical Distribution for Olive Films, he is taking the well established video distributor into the theatrical arena, opening ...

    Europa Distribution

    We have all have gone to discussions on distribution where the distributors despair in the face of high costs to advertise, difficulty in getting theatrical releases, no returns on social networking and other new internet initiatives. After attending one in San Sebastian hosted by European Film Promotion, we were notified that one of the supporters, Europa Distribution, might want to tell more people in the business about its mission. My discussion with the founder Adeline Monzier opens up possibilities for U.S. distributors even though they do not receive any government financial aid. Europa Distribution is the voice of independent distri...

    Patrick Frater Reports on Korean Films in France

    Maybe it's not kosher to take articles verbatim like this and my previous ScreenDaily reprint. But Patrick Frater, former journalist with Screen and Variety among other pubs, started his data-based online news Film Business Asia not too long ago and it is filling a much needed position covering Asia from both Eastern and Western povs. This article on how three great South Korean films, Poetry, The Housemaid and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Livesfared in their French theatrical release is unique. The stories are derived from the data collected by Patrick and his partner Stephen Cremin. As they describe it, Film Business Asia is a ...
