EEAP renamed A Company Film Licensing Intl.

Dulmen's group widens scope across region

MOSCOW

A Company Filmed Entertainment is rebranding its Central and Eastern Europe distrib.

Berlin-based Eastern Europe Acquisition Pool has been renamed A Company Film Licensing Intl.

In other changes, Hungary-based EEAP on Demand will now be known as A Company on Demand.

A Company Entertainment head Alexander van Dulmen said: “Historically it made sense to call EEAP an acquisition pool when we founded the company in 2002, now that it is wholly-owned and managed through A Company Filmed Entertainment we think it is more reasonable for the company to be identified as a single brand.”

A Company Film Licensing Intl. has a catalog of more than 400 titles, including “The King’s Speech,” “The Reader,” “Machete” and “Cloud Atlas.”

In April 2011, Alexander Rodnyansky, one of Russia’s top independent producers, took a 51% stake through his company AR Films in A Company Consulting and Licensing, giving Dulmen’s group a wider strategic position across the region. Dulmen said at the time that Rodnyansky’s “vast experience, creative expertise and relations with major film companies around the world” would “help take A Company to the next level.”
