DreamWorks also closed deals with Inter-Film for the Ukraine, which was negotiated by Oleg Golovashkin, and a multi-picture agreement with MediaPro for the Czech Rep., Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary, negotiated by Anca Truta.

“Seven months ago, we began building our network of partners and are very pleased to be enhancing our network with these first-class distributors,” Jeff Small, DreamWorks president and COO, said.

DreamWorks previously announced partnerships with Constantin Film in Germany, Austria and Switzerland; eOne in the U.K. and Benelux; Nordisk Film in Scandinavia; Italia Film in the Middle East; Acme in the Baltics; Blitz for former Yugoslavia and Albania; Odeon in Greece; Sam Film in Iceland; United King in Israel; Andrea Leone Film in Italy; Monolith in Poland; Lusomundo in Portugal; a joint venture with Tri Pictures and DeaPlaneta for Spain; and Fida Film in Turkey.

DreamWorks’ domestic distributor, the Walt Disney Company, will continue to handle North America, Latin America, Asia, Russia and Australia.  Reliance continues to finance production of DreamWorks’ films and hold distribution rights in India.
