Mojto

CEO

One of Europe’s biggest true-blue independents, owned by Mojto since 2004, Beta Film, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2019, is a former pure-play distributor moving ever more into production in order to create and access high-end content that would otherwise go straight to platforms. Fortunately, it cuts several ways, as Beta can also co-produce individual titles such as “Babylon Berlin” and “Atlantic Crossing,” which was the highest-profile title at 2020’s Canne­series. The group partners with and holds stakes in multiple European production companies for fiction and nonfiction, as well as special-interest channels, taking a minority stake in Sagafilm via its Beta Nordic Studios umbrella this September. As consumers warm to foreign-language fare and the studios produce for their own platforms, Beta’s market opportunities are poised to grow.
