Spanish production house Filmanova and Barcelona-based indie distribber Notro Films have clinched a distribution and sales alliance which will mark Notro’s entry into international sales.

Notro has taken Spanish rights to Berlin competition player “One Day in Europe,” as well as two Filmanova Spanish-Argentine co-productions: Jorge Gaggero’s “Live-In Maid,” which shared the Special Jury Prize in the World Cinema Dramatic section at Sundance; and Juan Taratuto’s comedy, “No sos vos soy yo” (It’s Not You, It’s Me), which generated a good buzz off a recent panorama of Argentine pics in Galicia and Catalonia.

As part of the deal, which both partners see as ongoing, Notro will also rep select international rights on “Live-In” and “It’s Not You,” bowing an international sales operation at Cannes. “We were looking for a company which understands international co-productions and can offer not only distribution in Spain but also international sales,” said Filmanova prexy Anton Reixa. “This is an extremely important strategic agreement for us,” added Notro CEO Adolfo Blanco.

Filmanova’s trio dovetails into Notro’s line-up of popular art-house or crossover pics, seen in its recent pick-up of three films from Shochiku for Spain: Yoji Yamada’s “The Twilight Samurai” and “The Hidden Blade” and Yojiro Takita’s “When the Last Sword is Drawn.” Notro has also advancing on its first production: Albert Serra’s take on Don Quixote, “Honor de caballeria.”
