Marsh, previously SVP of international distribution strategy, upped as Van Lier announces departure

Anna Marsh has been tapped head of international film sales of Studiocanal. The appointment follows the ankling of Harold Van Lier, who was exec VP of international distribution and is now sailing to eOne, to head up its international film division from January.

Marsh will be reporting to Matthieu Zeller, EVP strategic marketing for France and international distribution. The exec had been SVP of international distribution strategy for Studiocanal territories and international distributors since June.

She joined the Paris-headquartered company in 2008 as VP of international sales and was upped senior VP of international sales in 2011.

Van Lier joins eOne after six years at film-TV group Studiocanal, Europe’s biggest movie producer, where, as head of international sales moving up finally to exec v.p. of international distribution, he saw international revenues multiply by six through to Cannes last year, as Studiocanal morphed from a company selling primarily French-language movies to one with 80% or more of English-language titles, tapping into a network of financing-production relationships established by Studiocanal under chairman-CEO Olivier Courson.

He leaves a company which is now one of Europe’s pre-eminent international sales forces, handling over the last 18 months titles such as Ethan and Joel Coen’s Cannes Grand Jury Prize winner “Inside Llewyn Davis” and elevated genre titles such as action-thrillers “Non Stop,” with Liam Neeson and “Gunman,” with Sean Penn and Javier Bardem, both produced by Joel Silver and financed by Studiocanal.
