Dutch distrib A-Film moves into Belgium

Partnership with Brussels-based Cineart to continue

LONDON — Dutch distributor A-Film announced Thursday it is extending its distribution operations into Belgium with the opening of an office in the Flemish city of Antwerp at the beginning of November.

“I see Benelux as one territory. The idea is to have two offices, one in Amsterdam, one in Antwerp, working in synergy as one company,” explained A-Film CEO Pim Hermeling.

He added that A-Film would continue its strategic partnership with Brussels-based distrib Cineart with whom it has regularly acquired Benelux rights in the past.

“The relationship will continue,” he said. “The output deals we have together will remain in place.

He noted just 400 of the 1,800 titles in A-Film’s catalog are owned jointly with Cineart.

The new Belgium team includes former Amsterdam employee Tine Verschaeve as marketing manager for both theatrical and home entertainment in Belgium, Ann Schepens as chief booker and Tom Weyts as home entertainment sales director.

A-Film Belgium’s first release will be Mel Gibson’s “Apocalypto.” Other upcoming titles include Adrian Caetano’s “Chronicle of an Escape,” Peter Duncan’s “Unfinished Sky” and Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind Rewind.”
