Madrid Screenings rings up sales

Filmax closes deals at event

MADRID — In a flurry of final sales at Madrid de Cine-Spanish Film Screenings, Filmax closed “The Borgias,” “Mud Boy,” “The Totenwackers” and “The Distance” with its frequent Benelux distributor, Paradiso Filmed Entertainment.

Meanwhile, Sogepaq began to push out sales on Karlovy Vary competition player “Pudor,” directed by David and Tristan Ulloa, selling all Benelux rights to Cinemien-ABC Distribution.

Sogepaq also licensed family drama “Pudor” to Turkey’s Irfan Film, together with “Scandalous!” and “Dog Head.”

Sold by its producer Media Films, Bigas Luna’s white Spanish trash drama “Yo soy la Juani!” went to Greece, and 6 Sales’ “Fort Apache” to Israel.

Per Spanish producers’ org Fapae, which organized Madrid de Cine, the best attended screenings were almost all newish titles: “XXY,” political satire toonpic “Animal Crisis,” “The Suicide Club,” Fernando Perez’s Berlinale Special player “Madrigal” and Imanol Uribe’s sea treasure hunt “The Nautical Chart.”

Welcoming 138 buyers, more than 30% up on 2006, Madrid de Cine is firmly established on the national cinema mini-mart circuit.

“The Screenings aren’t about showing big films. They allow buyers to discover new talent and lesser-known product,” said Sophie de Mac Mahon, head of international sales at Sogepaq.
