Veteran exec Elizabeth Kim has been named exec VP of international for the Film Department.
She’ll report to CEO Mark Gill and president-chief operating officer Neil Sacker, who launched the company earlier this year with the goal of fully financing and producing six films per year budgeted between $10 million and $35 million. The Film Department plans to license its pics to domestic and international distributors through an inhouse sales unit.
Kim was most recently senior VP of international film sales for Lionsgate, where she oversaw feature film sales for Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and key European territories. She also oversaw sales across all territories on the company’s library of more than 2,000 titles and was involved in foreign sales and launches of “Monster’s Ball,” “Hotel Rwanda,” “Amores perros” and the “Saw” franchise.
Kim joined Lionsgate in 2001 with the company’s acquisition of Trimark Pictures.
She will be based at the Film Department’s West Hollywood offices.
