Kinowelt snaps up Cine-Intl library

Catalogue includes classic pics from 60s and 70s

BERLIN — Kinowelt Intl. has acquired the film catalogue of defunct sales company Cine-International Filmvertrieb.

The library contains some 250 titles, including classics from the 1960s and 70s, among them works from the likes of Werner Herzog, Liv Ullmann, Josef Vilsmaier, Helma Sanders-Brahms and Rudolf Thome.

After 40 years in the business, Cine-Intl. filed for bankruptcy in July due to severe financial problems.
