Kinowelt International has taken over the film catalogue of the Munich-based sales agent Cine-International which declared insolvency last month.

The transaction was concluded by the Kinowelt subsidiary Futura Film Weltvertrieb im Filmverlag der Autoren with the insolvency administrator Oliver Schartl.

Cine-International's library includes such films as Joseph Vilsmaier's Autumn Milk (Herbstmilch), Helma Sanders-Brahms' Heinrich, Werner Herzog's Scream Of Stone (Schrei Aus Stein) and Liv Ullmann's Kristin Lavransdatter.

The library will complement Kinowelt International's own catalogue of German and international titles, ranging from the Winnetou and Edgar Wallace films of the 1960s to the classics of the New German Cinema.
