Knowledge powers Mip TV slate

Dutch Filmworks launches international division

Benelux film and TV distributor Dutch FilmWorks has launched House of Knowledge Intl., an international sales, licensing and production division.

Building on House of Knowledge, the domestic distribution DVD operation for nonfiction that launched in 2002, HKI will focus on mind, wellness and historical factual properties, Dutch FilmWorks CEO Willem Pruijssers announced Monday.

HKI’s first slate will be presented at the Mip TV mart, which kicks off in Cannes next Monday.

The first slate, split between docu specs and series, strongly emphasizes self-help and new age themes. It is led by “Staya Erusa: Find the Book of Knowledge,” a follow-up to “Staya Erusa: The Begining,” a film on how people can better live up to their expectations.

“Book of Kowledge” co-producer Uri Geller will present the docu at Mip TV.

The Mip TV slate also features living guide special “The Secret Goes Europe”; 14-part series “The Secret Workshops”; “The Brain Fitness Program”; docu collection “World War II in Word and Motion”; history of armed conflict skein “War Through Times”; dance guide “Jumpstyle”; “Play Poker Like the Pros”; and “Sexual Intelligence.”

“Nonfiction is growing fast in Benelux, especially among older audiences who didn’t buy DVDs a few years ago but now do. Being a distributor, we know how other distributors think, so selling to them is a natural step,” said Pruijssers.

For Benelux, Dutch FilmWorks holds down an output deal with Morgan Creek and distributes films from the Weinstein Co., Nu Image, Mandate and Lionsgate.
