Spain’s ‘Miracle’ to Buena Vista

Buy is feather for Sogetel

Furthering its reach into foreign-lingo fare, Buena Vista Film Sales has acquired all international rights outside Spain to Javier Fesser’s feature debut, “P. Tinto’s Miracle.”

Buena Vista Intl. will distribute the Spanish comedy in Latin America, and BVFS will handle international sales for the rest of the world. Domestic rights are still available.

An irreverent and zany pic, described as a cross between Terry Gilliam and a hillbilly “Delicatessen,” “Tinto” has grossed $4.7 million to date on its home turf.

Deal follows BVFS’ handling of international sales on the Argentinean pic “Ashes from Paradise.” BVI distribbed both “Ashes” and another Argentinean pic, “Dibu: The Movie” in Argentina, and German pic “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” in Germany, where it grossed $24 million.

The acquisition represents further success for Spanish production house Sogetel, which, aside from “Tinto,” produced “Lovers of the Arctic Circle” and “Open Your Eyes.” Fine Line Features has U.S. rights to “Lovers” and Artisan Entertainment U.S. rights to “Open.”

Sogetel produced or co-produced seven of the 10 highest-grossing domestic pix in Spain last year. Sogetel also had three pix in the Sundance World Cinema section: “Lovers,” Fernando Leon’s “Neighborhood” and “Tinto.”

BVFS VP Anne Sterling is credited with screening “Tinto” prior to Sundance and bringing it into her company. BVFS sales chief Michael Dragotto will introduce the pic to buyers at the American Film Market.

Maxmedia’s Sunmin Park and Sogetel topper Fernando Bovaira repped Sogetel. Sterling and BVI senior VP Jere Hausfater negotiated for BVFS.
