CANNES: Red Bull's CineMater Inks Pact

CANNES — Red Bull Media House’s recently launched theatrical production arm CineMater has inked a distribution pact with Warner Bros. Germany for German-speaking territories.

The partnership starts with Gerardo Olivares helmed “The Way of the Eagle,” which is in production and will be released next year.

CineMater is an affiliate of Red Bull’s TV docu division Terra Mater Factual Studios.

Walter Koehler, CEO of Terra Mater Factual Studios, said: “With Terra Mater’s established background in innovation, our projects are already an exciting prospect for the market, and I’m sure this cooperation will grow from strength to strength and from distribution into a true production cooperation.”

Willi Geike, president and m.d. of Warner Bros. Germany, said: “We’re always looking to secure deals which go beyond distribution and can add value to our business, as well as to our partner’s. By working with Terra Mater Factual Studios on an ongoing basis, we see the prospect of an exciting collaboration that has endless possibilities.”
