Mickie Departs Entertainment One As It Launches New Global Sales Arm

Veteran international sales exec exits in mid-January as more changes shakeup up indie

Charlotte Mickie will depart Entertainment One’s Films Intl. division, where she currently serves as executive veep, the Toronto-headquartered company announced.

The veteran international film sales exec will leave the company in mid-January. It’s not clear what her next move will be, considering that her exit comes during the run-up to February’s European Film Market in Berlin.

The company also announced today that it will be launching Seville Intl. through its Quebec-based Les Films Seville arm, with Montreal-based veep of international sales Anick Poirier at the helm. The new division will be part of eOne Films Intl. and will focus on exploiting independent films from Quebec and the world.

Poirier will work alongside Les Films Seville prexy Patrick Roy and will report to incoming eOne Films Intl. prexy Harold van Lier, who starts in January.

The company is expected to make further announcement regarding its international film operations in early 2014.

A active long-time booster of the Toronto film community, Mickie was responsible for the international acquisition, marketing and sales of many high-profile titles — including “Incendies” and “Beasts of the Southern Wild” — while at eOne, which she joined in 2008 after the company acquired Maximum Films.

Prior to her time at Maximum, Mickie handled films by many of the world’s top art-film directors as an exec at Celluloid Dreams and at Alliance Atlantis, where she worked for many years. Mickie also founded the specialized international sales unit of Alliance Entertainment, where she repped films by Canadian directors Denis Villeneuve and Atom Egoyan.

“The contribution Charlotte has made to the independent film community is unparalleled. She has helped countless young filmmakers find their voice and realize success around the world,” said Nelson Kuo-Lee, executive veep and COO of eOne’s Global Film Group. “We sincerely thank Charlotte and wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavors.”
