Cinema Management nabs pix

Los Angeles-based Cinema Management Group, headed by former Miramax senior VP of international Edward Noeltner, is ramping up its Latino slate.

It has picked up exclusive international distribution rights to Chilean drama “B-Happy,” by Gonzalo Justiniano.

CMG already has worldwide sales rights to Elia Schneider’s Venezuelan feature “Punto y raya” (Step Forward).

CMG is an international licensing, distribution, marketing and sales firm that was founded in spring.

“B-Happy” won the Forum of New Cinema Award at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and actress kudos for Manuela Martelli at the 2004 Havana fest, among other prizes.

Pic tracks a 14-year-old girl who must overcome hardship and personal tragedy to “be happy.”

“Punto y raya” won the picture award at the Los Angeles Intl. Latino Film Festival in July.

Pic, which opened in Venezuela four weeks ago, is the top local box office hit of the year and is tipped to represent Venezuela at the Academy Awards. Drama centers on the guerrilla conflict in Colombia and Venezuela.

CMG is screening both pics in L.A. on Saturday in anticipation of awards season.
