Manuel Feliu

Buyer box

Chile’s Phoenix World Investments, a pan-Latin American distributor and rights broker, theatrically releases on average 15 pics a year across the region via its distribs or subdistribs. PWI launched Argentinian specialty distrib Quasar last year in a bid to tap the country’s recovering market. PWI’s acquisitions chief Manuel Feliu has picked up films including “Monster,” “Seed of Chucky,” “The Jacket” and “The Pianist.”

Cannes 2004 pickups: ” ‘The Black Dahlia.’ We bought another one but the deal fell through.”

Wish list: “We hope to buy at least eight films this year, with three or four hopefully from Cannes. We are looking for high-profile films to provide to our strong network of clients in all of Latin America, including Brazil.”

Market health: “Latin America’s indie market is in constant growth despite the political and economic instability in some countries. Cinema construction grew 25% in some key territories. We think that independents play a vital role in the local film industries.”

Fave Cannes screen: Le Palais

Regrets: “Million Dollar Baby”
