Taiwan-based production firm MandarinVision has launched its own international sales operations. The new unit is unleashing two comedy films this week at Hong Kong’s FilMart.

Former Atom Cinema sales head Desmond Yang has been appointed to oversee international sales. The company’s film development and production part is led by producer Yeh Jufeng.

Light-hearted comedy “Ace of Sales” is about a young female home shopping host who is held hostage during a live show and becomes the top sales person. “Ace” is directed by Cho Li, who previously directed 2015 Berlinale Panorama entry “Rice Bomber.”

“Godspeed” centers around a punk and a cab driver who are joined in an involuntary journey that changes their lives forever. Starring veteran Hong Kong comedian Michael Hui, the dark comedy is directed by Chung Mong-hong. Chung hit the headlines with “Parking” and “the Fourth Portrait. His horror film “Soul” was Taiwan’s contender for the 2013 Oscars foreign-language category.

Both “Ace” and “Godspeed” are currently in post-production.
