AFM: China’s Huala Takes 13-Film Package From Indie Rights

Los Angeles-based sales and aggregation company Indie Rights has struck a 13-film licensing deal with China’s Huala New Media. The deal was completed at the American Film market, which Indie Rights is attending for the first time as an IFTA member.

Titles package is headed by “The View From Here,” “Art Show Bingo,” and “Somebody’s Mother.” The deal covers all rights and mainland China only, though theatrical releases are not likely.

Other titles include: “Carving A Life,” “Fell, Jumped or Pushed,” “Is That You,” “Blue,” “Fray,” “Nobody Walks In LA,” “Dirty Beautiful,” “The Enchanted Cottage,” “Erasing Eden,” and “Miles To Go.”

“We are so excited to bring such a diverse range of award-winning dramas to the Chinese audience” said Indie Rights CEO Linda Nelson. “It is our biggest deal yet with China.” The company maintains direct partnerships with the leading U.S. digital platforms including Amazon, Google, Cinedigm, MGo and Adrise. Huala is a Beijing-based distribution and tech firm.
