Cohen Media picks up Spain's Oscar foreign-lingo nom

MADRID — Cohen Media Group has acquired all U.S. rights to Pablo Berger’s black-and-white silent cinema tribute “Blancanieves,” Spain’s entry for the foreign-language Oscar.

Sold by Madrid’s Dreamcatchers, “Blancanieves” recasts the Snow White tale in 1920s’ Seville, with the heroine becoming a feisty femme bullfighter.

Lead-produced by Spain’s Arcadia Motion Pictures, “Blancanieves” world preemed at Toronto, earning rave reviews and multiple offers for U.S. distribution.

Pic won a special jury award and actress laurels for Macarena Garcia at San Sebastian.

CMG will now make a significant push to snag a foreign-language nomination, said exec VP Gary Rubin.
