eOne taps Caplan as int’l sales topper

HQ of eOne Films Intl. to shift to London

eOne has tapped U.K. industry stalwart Sally Caplan as managing director of its London-based international film sales division, effective immediately.

The appointment heralds a significant expansion in eOne’s sales, financing and distribution activities. The headquarters of eOne Films Intl. will shift to London from its base in Toronto.

The Toronto team will continue to be headed by exec VP Charlotte Mickie, who will report to Caplan. It will continue to handle the sales and distribution of Canadian features.

In the newly-created role, Caplan will continue to expand eOne’s foreign sales through partnerships with international distribs, filmmakers and producers. She will hire heads of sales, marketing and legal and business affairs team to work with her in London.

Exec will report to eOne’s Filmed Entertainment chief operating officer Nelson Kuo-Lee.

Caplan has a wealth of experience in the industry and most recently headed up the Premiere Fund of the now-shuttered U.K. Film Council, which injected £8 million ($12.6 million) annually into Brit pics such as “The King’s Speech,” “Streetdance 3D” and “Another Year.”

Since leaving the UKFC in April 2010, she has served as a consultant to Toronto-based debt financier Aver.

Before the UKFC, she was prexy of Icon Film Distribution, senior VP of acquisitions and business affairs at Momentum Pictures, senior VP of worldwide acquisitions at Polygram Intl./Universal Pictures and VP of acquisitions and business affairs at Polygram Filmed Entertainment U.K., where she was involved in pickups including “Trainspotting,” “The Usual Suspects” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”

“We’re thrilled to have Sally Caplan join the team as our international film business expands into the U.K. and the rest of Europe,” said Kuo-Lee. “Sally’s wealth of relationships with content owners will enhance eOne’s ability to acquire international rights to premium films and offer greater access to these projects at an earlier stage for our distribution operations in the U.K., Canada, Australia and the Benelux.”

Under Mickie, eOne Films Intl. handled pics including “Animal Kingdom,” “Incendies” and Quebec hit “Starbuck.”
