Venevision takes Vertice pack

U.S. Hispanic distrib unveils deals at Madrid de Cine

MADRID — Miami-based Venevision Intl. and Spain’s Vertice Sales have inked U.S. DVD, pay TV and video-on-demand distribution rights to a package of pics, led by Borja Cobeaga comedy “No controles” (Lovestorming).

Deal also includes David Serrano’s musical comedy “With or Without Love,” Cuban co-production drama “Afinidades” and Luis Aviles’ offbeat thriller “Retornos.”

Pact was unveiled Monday at the 6th Madrid de Cine-Spanish Film Screenings, which runs June 19-21.

Venevision Intl. has also sealed a five-movie deal with Spanish production company DC Media.

Titles include Vicente Molina-Foix’s immigration tale “The Good of Wood,” toplining vet Spanish thesp Marisa Paredes.

Drama “Propios y extranos,” a Spain-Argentina co-production, has been acquired from Luis Angel Bellaba’s production company Aquelarre. Venevision has also bought Miguel

Angel Lamata’s comedy “Tension sexual no resulta,” from production shingle Bowfinger, and nabbed David Planell’s drama “The Shame” from Madrid-based producer-distributor Avalon.

Venevision Intl.’s acquisitions are mainly channeled through 24-hour pay TV service VeneMovies, dedicated to airing films from Spain and Latin America. (From July, VeneMovies will be re-baptized as ViendoMovies.)

A pioneering and voracious buyer of Spanish films for the U.S. Hispanic market, Venevision Intl. has taken rights on more than 400 films handled by Spanish sellers, company’s Madrid-based acquisitions exec Jose Ramon Ganchegui said at Madrid de Cine.

“For Spanish movies’ distribution in the U.S. Hispanic market, leadership in the VOD window will be key for the future,” Ganchegui said.
