Former Horizon Motion Pictures vice president of sales and acquisitions Caroline Stern has joined Toronto-based Cinemavault as head of sales.

Stern relocates from Vancouver and will travel with the Cinemavault team to the EFM in Berlin next week to commence sales on Stephanie Black's new Bob Marley documentary Africa Unite, among others.

Stern joined Horizon Motion Pictures in 2001 and worked her way up from servicing, business affairs administrator to vice president. 'Caroline brings seven years of experience in the international arena,' Cinemavault Releasing CEO Nick Stiliadis said. 'We are thrilled to have her in the team.'

Africa Unite receives its world premiere in Rotterdam this week and follows three generations of the Marley family on their first trip to Ethiopia for a landmark concert commemorating the singer's 60th birthday.

Palm Pictures holds US rights. Black produced while Rita Marley, Cedella Marley and Louverture Films' Danny Glover and Joslyn Barnes served as executive producers. Cinemavault's vice president of acquisitions Michael Paszt brokered the deal with Doreen Crujeiras on behalf of Tuff Gong Pictures and Barnes.
