CANNES: Pantelion Launches International Division

Aiming to expand international operations, Pantelion Films has named Lionsgate sales executive Anne-Marie Ross as president of its new international division.

Ross will report to Pantelion Films CEO Paul Presburger.

Pantelion — a joint venture between Lionsgate and Televisa — will kick off its international slate at Cannes with George Lopez’ “La Vida Robot,” starring Lopez, Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis in the true story of four undocumented Mexican-American high school students competing against MIT in a robotics competition.

“From original films to co-productions, local language remakes and third-party titles, we see opportunities throughout the global marketplace for Pantelion’s diversified slate of mainstream commercial films with cross-cultural appeal and relatable Hispanic characters, themes and settings,” Presburger said.

Ross will oversee international sales of Pantelion’s titles and start a third-party business to represent films for international sales and licensing. She will also work with Pantelion’s development and production teams to assemble a film slate with global appeal.

Ross most recently served as exec VP of sales for Lionsgate International overseeing several key European territories, Australia and Japan. She has been on the international sales team for 13 years and worked on the “Hunger Games,” “Divergent” and “Saw” franchises, along with “Monster’s Ball” and “Hotel Rwanda.”

Pantelion’s “Instructions Not Included” grossed nearly $100 million worldwide and was the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever released in the U.S.
