Lolafilms exits London

Intl. sales to be based in Madrid

MADRID — Spanish prodco Lolafilms is shuttering its London offices to centralize its international sales in Spain.

Will Machin, Lolafilms’ co-prexy of international sales, will relocate to Madrid at the end of the year.

Machin will continue to team with Lola’s other co-prexy of international sales, Marina Fuentes, who is already based in Madrid. Both report to Lolafilms CEO Andres Vicente Gomez.

“The move doesn’t mean any change in structure or strategy at Lolafilms,” Gomez told Daily Variety. “This is about cost. London is excessively expensive.”

Lolafilms Intl.’s English-lingo sales slate is headed by Aisling Walsh’s “Song for a Raggy Boy,” which is shooting. The company is also developing a high-budget English-lingo project, “The Feast of the Goat,” with Luis Llosa (“The Specialist”) attached to direct. It has six pics in post, including David Trueba’s “The Salamina Soldiers.”
