Gregoire Gensollen has joined FilmNation Entertainment as VP of international distribution and strategy.

Based in New York, Gensollen will report to founder and CEO Glen Basner and chief operating officer Milan Popelka. His responsibilities include pricing on international sales, financial analysis and distribution strategy as well as strategic planning and business development.

“Gregoire’s international distribution experience combined with his expertise in sales pricing and motion picture deal analysis make him a great addition to the team,” Basner said. “He has developed great relationships with a number of foreign distributors, producers and financiers which will serve him well in this new role.”

Before FilmNation Entertainment, Gensollen was Lionsgate’s VP of international strategic and sales planning covering film and TV, as well as overseeing Lionsgate U.K.’s acquisitions and local productions since 2006.

Founded in 2008 by international sales executive Basner, FilmNation’s international sales slate includes Relativity Media’s Untitled “Snow White” project starring Julia Roberts, Steven Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike,” Christian Bale starrer “Heroes of Nanking” as well as Terrence Malick’s next project.

FilmNation Entertainment is developing a string of films, including the untitled Oren Peli project, Jeff Nichols’ “Mud,” and “Message From the King” from scribes Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell.
