US West, AFM On Infopike

A high-level meeting between US West execs and the American Film Marketing Assn.’s board of directors Feb. 28 did not result in any big film deals but could point the way to future pipelines for indie film products.

The telco group described its ongoing efforts to establish video-on-demand services around the country, particularly in Omaha, and as part of the Time-Warner Full Service Network in Orlando.

“We’re interested in supplying our customers with the movies they want to see,” said Sol Trujillo, president and CEO of marketing resources for US West.

But the US West execs stressed that until federal regulations eased, they were not in the market for films.

Heading up the AFMA host group were Jonas Rosenfield, AFMA president, along with exec VP Timothy Kittelson and chairman Pamela Pickering.

Among the US West delegation were Larry S. Levine, VP and general manager of multimedia services, and Josette Bonte, head of strategic marketing and interactive services.
