New unit to be led by Askin-Schreger

NEW YORK — Cinetic is launching an international sales and consulting division to be led by ex-2929 international chief Shebnem Askin-Schreger.

The unit bows May 1.

Partners John Sloss and Bart Walker and senior finance exec Matt Littin noted Cinetic’s long history on the international scene. But the new division, they said, will offer clients more direct handling in increasingly crucial foreign markets.

Cinetic Intl. will offer foreign sales, consulting, financing and packaging.

As president of 2929 Intl., the worldwide sales and distribution unit of Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban’s 2929 Entertainment, Askin-Schreger handled international distribution and marketing for pics such as “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” and “Two Lovers.”

Before 2929, she worked in sales for Pandora/Gaylord Films.
