Sale house Wide enters documentary biz

New label will focus on co-production

French sales house Wide Management is launching a documentary label focusing on niche titles and docus with social, historical and political themes.

Wide House, which will be at next week’s Mip TV mart in Cannes, will handle an average of 10 features and 10 made-for-TV docus per year.

Anais Clanet, Wide’s topper of international sales will run the new division and handle acquisitions. The goal, said Clanet, will be to co-produce docus. “We’re seeking to do more pre-sales to help close financing on important titles.”

Wide Management has been selling docus for two years and has developed relationships with arthouse buyers in major territories, including First Run in the U.S., New Wave in the U.K. and Fandango in Italy.

Wide’s most recent acquisitions include Ines Compan’s “Open Sky,” which centers on the struggle of Argentina’s Kollas natives as they faced the construction of the Pirquitas Mine on their soil.

Wide House also has “Mine, My Life Behind the Scenes,” a docu about French costume designer Mine Barral-Verges
