Memento Films International has generated strong buzz on Venice Horizons title Goodbye Solo with sales to Imagine in Benelux and Xenix in Switzerland.

Following its premiere in Venice, the film is also being pursued with offers from France, Portugal, Greece and Italy among others.

Ramin Bahrani's third feature will hit Toronto this week where it screens in the World Contemporary Cinema section. Also on Memento's Toronto slate are Cannes title Wendy & Lucy by Kelly Reichardt and So-Yong Kim's Treeless Mountain which will premiere at the festival.

Further, Memento has announced the arrival of two new executives. Nicholas Kaiser, formerly head of marketing and festivals at Rezo Films, has joined MFI to head up TV and video sales (as well as all rights in certain territories) while Films Distribution's Marion Klotz will act as head of festival relations.
