Beta sells ‘Rabe’ across Europe

'North Face' goes to more than 20 territories

BERLIN — Beta Cinema has continued to ramp up business following last week’s European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival with a slew of sales for its high-profile titles.

Spain’s Antenna 3/DeA Planeta, Italy’s RAI Cinema and Austrian pubcaster ORF all picked up Berlinale screener “John Rabe,” Florian Gallenberger’s fact-based World War II drama about the German industrialist who saved more than 200,000 Chinese from Japanese invaders during the Nanjing massacre.

Dutch distrib Moonlight picked up Kai Wessel’s “Hilde,” a biopic of late German icon Hildegard Knef, which likewise unspooled at the Berlinale, for the Netherlands and Belgium.

Beta also racked up further sales for Philipp Stoelzl’s mountain climbing tale “North Face” and Max Faerberboeck’s postwar drama “A Woman in Berlin,” which have so far sold to more than 20 countries.

“North Face” went to Toei in Japan, CTV in France, Atlantic for Scandinavia, Moonlight for Benelux, Joint Entertainment in Taiwan, EDKO in Hong Kong and Bona Entertainment for China, while “A Woman in Berlin” sold to Strand Releasing in the U.S., Scanbox for Scandinavia and Cine Colombia for Colombia.

Japan’s Star Sands nabbed Robert Dornhelm’s adaptation of Puccini’s “La Boheme,” while Moonlight took Umberto Pasolini’s “Machan,” about a Sri Lankan handball team’s trip to Germany, for the Netherlands and Belgium. Antenna 3/DeA Planeta also bought tyke adventure “The Three Investigators: Terror Castle,” Florian Baxmeyer’s second installment in the popular mystery franchise.
