Media 8 slots global sales VP

Mackiewicz makes the move to senior veep

Los Angeles-based Media 8 Entertainment has tapped Liz Mackiewicz as senior veep of worldwide distribution.

She will be responsible for overseeing all sales, licensing and distribution activities on behalf of the company, beginning May 1.

Media 8’s Cannes slate includes “The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing,” “The Horror Chronicles” trilogy and “Lovewrecked,” starring Amanda Bynes.

Move comes after Media 8 vet Brian O’Shea ankled this month to head a foreign sales division launched by Gigi Pritzker and Deborah Del Prete’s Odd Lot Entertainment.

Mackiewicz comes to Media 8 from First Look Studios, where she had served since 1996, most recently as senior VP, worldwide sales and distribution.

While at First Look, Mackiewicz was involved with films such as “Titus,” “Illuminata,” “Before Night Falls” and “Waking Ned Devine.”

Media 8’s most recent productions include New Line Cinema’s “Running Scared” and “The Upside of Anger.”
