Sony inks Scandi distrib’n pact

Sony Pictures Entertainment’s overseas distribution arm, Columbia TriStar Film Distributors Intl., has opened the doors to establishing joint ventures with prominent Scandinavian film distribution outfit Egmont Entertainment.

The agreement, establishing one joint venture each in Norway and Finland, will cover not only films but also TV programming, video (including DVD) and other entertainment product.

Executives from the two companies will sit on the boards of both new ventures, and ownership in these will, at least initially, be split 50-50.
