Former Celluloid Dreams sales executive Tanja Meissner has joined Paris-based producer/distributor Memento Films. Meissner will act as head of world sales and acquisitions for the company.

Her first markets will be Venice and Toronto.

Memento has recently acquired Philippe Aractingi's Under The Bombs which traces the story of a Shiite woman and a Christian taxi driver who search for the woman's missing son in southern Lebanon.

Memento is also working with Jia Zhang-ke's documentary Useless, in selection in Venice, and Home by Ursula Meier starring Isabelle Huppert.

Prior to joining Celluloid Dreams in 2000, Meissner was a long time collaborator of Wieland Speck at the Berlinale Panorama section.
