BV Intl. Pictures rolls as sister firm fades

Norwegian co-production and international sales outfit BV Intl. Pictures (BVIP) will not be affected by the bankruptcy filed sister company BV Film, owner Bjorg Veland’s domestic distribbery.

“They are two separate enterprises. And while our local distribution was ailing, the international operation is going full steam ahead,” said BVIP executive Heidi Jorgensen.

Now in receivership, BV Film holds the rights to almost 70 features, comprising such titles as “A Bronx Tale” and “Antonia’s World” and hit “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”

At the upcoming Toronto Intl. Film Festival, BVIP will tout Rick Elgood and Don Lett’s romantic rasta comedy, “One Love,” starring one of the late Bob Marley’s sons, Ky-Mani Marley. The film was launched at Cannes.

New screenings at Montreal fest include Carl Bessai’s “Emile,” starring Ian McKellen and Deborah Kara Unger. BVIP also represents Tony Vitale’s “One Last Ride,” with Chazz Palminteri and Robert Davi.
