Newly launched indie distrib Advanced Filmveleih will bring four pics to German cinemas by the end of this year. Advanced’s 1998 slate includes David Caffrey’s “Divorcing Jack,” Alex de la Iglesia’s “Perdita Durango” and Jacques Rivette’s “Secret Defense.”
Larry Clark’s “Another Day in Paradise” and Pat O’Connor’s “Dancing at Lughnasa” are among the 15 titles planned for 1999.
Advanced expects to release 25 films by the year 2000 and will create a production arm to fund German pics as well as international co-productions.
Munich-based Advanced is a wholly-owned subsidiary of film licensing company TSC Communication.
The distrib is headed by TSC managing director Hanns-Arndt Jovy, Andreas von Schorlemer and Alfred Schantz, co-founder of indie distributor Nil Filmverleih.
