US and Dominican Republic-based The Indomina Group has set up its in-house international sales division on the eve of Cannes and appointed former IM Global executive Catherine Quantschnigg and Carole Siller to oversee.
The maiden Cannes slate features vampire thriller Reign Of Blood with Elizabeth Hurley, Danny Huston, Wes Bentley, Alice Eve, Gemma Arterton, Mark Strong, Eddie Marsan and Kevin McKidd attached to star.
Horror tale The Shrine stars Aaron Ashmore and Cindy Sampson and the roster includes the comedy Tiny Furniture starring Lena Dunham and Merritt Wever. IFC Films holds US rights to both titles.
Quantschnigg is named vp of international sales. As the former head of IM Global’s genre division Octane, she brought Paranormal Activity to buyers. Before that she worked at Showtime Networks. Independent strategic consultant Carole Siller has spent the last 20 years working in the entertainment business.
“Indomina has been built as an innovative production, distribution, and now sales company that operates on a sound business plan that allows us to choose projects that align with our overall business model,” co-chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann said. “This is a natural growth initiative for us and we’re excited to introduce the Indomina brand to foreign distribution partners in Cannes.”
Indomina Releasing, the North American distribution division of the The Indomina Group, recently signed an exclusive multi-year distribution deal with Vivendi Entertainment that spans home video, digital, internet, television, VOD and mobile platforms.
Indomina Releasing’s debut domestic theatrical release True Legend starring Vincent Zhao, Zhou Xun, Michelle Yeoh and the late David Carradine will open in select markets on May 13.
The Indomina Group has also partnered with Pinewood Studios Group, to build, operate, manage and market Pinewood Indomina Studios, a film and television studio facility in the Dominican Republic.
