Expands international distribution rights
Summit Entertainment has struck a three-year output deal with Media Pro Entertainment, the distribution division of Central European Media Enterprise, for all rights in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania to Summit’s slate of theatrical films.
The deal was announced Tuesday by Ralpho Borgos, Summit Entertainment’s Senior VP of international sales, and Anca Truta, general manager of MediaPro Distribution.
The deal covers Summit’s titles through August 2014 including “Now You See Me” and the re-booted “Highlander.”
Summit launched its relationship with Media Pro in 2007 when Summit started licensing the rights to the studio’s films to Romania and Bulgaria. During the past year, Media Pro’s distribution of Summit’s films has expanded to include Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia.
“Media Pro has proven itself to be a reliable and excellent distributor that has maximized results for us across all theatrical, video and television platforms,” said Borgos. “We are happy to partner with them over these next three years to continue bringing Summit’s films to their audiences.”
