Deal includes films in Chinese, Malay

Malaysian distrib Variety View has picked up worldwide distribution rights to a package of 230 Singaporean library films from the Cathay Keris Films group. Deal, valued at just shy of $1 million, gives Variety Vision rights for five years across multiple formats including theatrical, DVD and pay TV.

Films in Chinese and Malay languages were made in the golden age of Singapore cinema between 1953 and 1974, and were produced by CKF and its Hong Kong offshoot Motion Picture & General Investments.

Titles covered by the deal include “Mambo Girl,” “Wild Wild Rose,” “Dang anom” and “Hang jebat.” Many have been remastered over the past couple of years.
