Matamoros joins Benece

Exec takes producing role

BARCELONA — Well-known Catalan film and TV exec David Matamoros has ankled as manager of co-productions and market research at Catalan Films & TV to join Benece, one of the Barcelona’s leading arthouse film production shingles.

Matamoros will produce both fiction feature films and documentaries at Benece.

An integrated TV, cinema and commercials production house founded in 1986, Benece’s credits include Marc Recha’s “August Days” and, most recently, Eduard Cortes’ “The Clown and the Fuhrer.”

While “August Days” played Toronto, the aim in bringing Matamoros on board is to further co-production links and international biz at Benece, Benece CEO Xavier Atance told Daily Variety.

“I firmly believe in a specific kind of film — European movies such as “Irina Palm” or “The Lives of Others” which are very humble in its conception but yield splendid results,” Matamoros said.

Benece projects in development include an interactive fable about a MySpace type universe, and a Bollywood-ish style, India-set musical, both to be helmed by Eduard Cortes.
