Co. will merge operations with Nordisk Film

STOCKHOLM — Denmark’s Trust Film Sales and Nordisk Film Intl. Sales will merge operations, starting from next month’s Berlin Film Festival.

For years, Trust Film Sales, which is owned by Zentropa, has sold features for international theatrical release, while Nordisk Film Sales has concentrated on sales to TV outlets. The new co-operation means that the companies can benefit from each other’s strengths.

In Berlin, Trust will represent films from Zentropa and Nordisk. Nordisk Film Sales will represent the features from both companies in sales to TV.

Trust CEO Rikke Ennis, CEO at Trust, said: “This is a win-win situation not only for Nordisk and for Trust, but also for our producers. Now we can offer the perfect platform for our films, whether they are arthouse, family movies, TV movies or genre movies.”
