EXCLUSIVE: UK sales and distribution outfit adds TV and digital sales executive.

UK sales outfit Starline Entertainment has appointed Anna Brunelli as sales and acquisitions executive.

Italian, French and English-speaker Brunelli, who previously worked as production and distribution assistant for Italian companies Gabriele Albanesi Productions and as acquisitions and sales assistant at A-Pictures in Rome, will handle TV and digital sales to Southern Europe and Latin America.

Brunelli, who was also a production assistant for Les Films du Requin in Paris, recently started at the company.

Also new to the London-based outfit is marketing executive Tanya Lopes who will handle the company’s arrangements for film and TV markets and all marketing materials.

The English and Portuguese speaker began her career as an apprentice at High Point films, moving on to sales and marketing support before working in marketing outside the film and TV Industry. 

Partner and director of worldwide distribution Julie Delaney said of the staff additions: “With her extensive experience and contacts across Southern Europe and Latin America, Anna has really hit the ground running, while Tanya’s marketing savvy and knowledge of social media is invaluable.”

Starline recently teamed with Picturehouse, DocHouse, ICA and Home Manchester on the release of Gerry Fox’s feature documentary Marc Quinn: Making Waves.
