Dygra launches int’l sales arm

Da Cunha to head toon unit

Galicia-based animation studio Dygra Films has launched an inhouse international sales arm, headed by Tania Pinto Da Cunha.

It will focus on Dygra productions to begin with, handling CGI toon pic “The Spirit of the Forest,” skedded for delivery in early 2007; and family comedy “Holly Night!”, due Christmas of the same year.

Company’s first slate will be rounded out by Dygra’s first live action pic “Los muertos van deprisa,” to shoot in high-def from September.

Dygra’s “A Midsummer’s Dream,” which bowed last summer, will continue to be handled by Lumina Films.

Firm’s growing slate gives it enough critical mass to justify an overseas distrib division.

“Dygra is growing and we think it’s the right moment to create our own international sales department,” said Pinto da Cunha, who became executive producer in March 2005.

Dygra joins the swelling ranks of Spanish sales companies.

Boutique producer/distributor Notro Films launched sales on a string of titles tapped from Galician production company Filmanova at Berlin in 2005.

Mainstream indie producer/distributor DeAPlaneta will relaunch as an international sales company at next month’s Cannes Film Festival.
