continue to nurture their respective profiles and brands. Coproduction’s strength is world cinema while Katapult focuses on English-language fare.
Philippe Bober and Vanja Kalurjercic remain in charge of acquisitions
for Coproduction Office, and Anna Kvorning will continue to oversee
for Katapult. Kvorning will join the sales team under the supervision
of Sarah Calderon at Coproduction Office in Paris.

partnership by producers Joni Sighvatsson and Jeff Levy-Hinte. Its hit
titles include A Little Trip To Heaven, Sherrybaby and Filth And
Coproduction Office was founded by Philippe Bober in 1987 and the
company’s first project, Lars Von Trier’s Europa, won the Cannes Jury
Prize in 1991.
