Fortissimo Films exec to form CAT and Docs

BRUSSELS — Fortissimo Films’ head of TV and ancillary sales, Catherine Le Clef, is leaving to launch her own documentary sales shingle, CAT and Docs.

Based in Paris, it will be looking for “relevant, innovative, topical and director-driven documentaries.”

Negotiations for the shingle’s first titles are under way, Le Clef said.

Sales and acquisitions will be handled by Maelle Guenegues, who worked with Le Clef when she headed Doc and Co, before joining Fortissimo in 2006.
