Filmula focuses on features with broad international appeal and with budgets of up to $30 million; its first venture was “Hesher,” which premiered at Sundance this year.

“This partnership is a natural fit. We’ve had a long and successful relationship with SSG as they are distributing all our movies in Taiwan. I’m thrilled to be able to expand our already strong relationship with Johnny Lin and his team,” Basner said.

Lin will be an exec producer on the titles handled for Filmula by FilmNation.
