Rights Round Up Cannes 2011 by International Sales Agent A – G

Rights Round Up Cannes 2011 by International Sales Agent A - G

The Rights RoundUp is a work-in-progress which will go on throughout Cannes until the next big show: Toronto, showing deals as they get made, listed by sales agent. It also shows all the festival films including those in Competition, out of Competition, Un Certain Regard, Directors’ Fortnight and Critics Week by sales agent or producer when there is no sales agent.

We already noticed 2 trends before the market started: Every film which already sold (before Cannes) includes a sale to a Belgian distributor. This may well be connected with the exceptional tax benefits given to Belgian companies who invest in film production, thus prompting distribution companies to prebuy top films in eary stages.

Another trend is that the Romanians are buying lots of festival films. This may be connected to the recent multiplex chain throughout Romania as well as Romania’s top TV position in Central and Eastern Europe.

A new trend started last year was the last minute announcement of major big projects. This year 5 such major big projects were announced which threw the buyers and buyers’ reps into a confused flurry of last minute script reading and project evaluating.

Finally, so many films this year were about abused or abandoned or helpless children (and young women), that perhaps Palme dOr winner Tree of Life was a welcome respite from hopeless situations to the one redeeming force in the universe: the power of love.

Below the jump we will begin tracking acquisitions of Cannes Festival and Market titles of some 400+ international sales agents who are licensing rights to some 2,500+ distributors acquiring films for some 60+ international territories.
