Entertainment One has brought on Benjamina Mirnik-Voges to open a German office and expand its film operations in the country. She joins from Universum Film where, as head of film, she acquired movies including “Hateful 8” and “Lion.”
At eOne she takes the newly created role of managing director, Germany, film, and will open a new Munich outpost for the independent studio. She will run the group’s theatrical business in the country. Christian Fritzsche will continue to lead the licensing of films in the German-speaking market, and will relocate from London to Munich.
“The addition of Germany will be a major boost to our distribution profile on a pan-European basis and will support our creative partnerships worldwide,” said Alex Hamilton, eOne’s EMEA fillm boss, to whom Mirnik-Voges will report.
“Over the last several years, I’ve watched the company rise to the top in each of its markets and I’m looking forward to the same success in Germany,” Mirnik-Voges said.
