Documentary label Autentic is opening a new sales office in Cologne next week under Anne Hufnagel.

The label is working with the likes of WDR mediagroup for non-fiction sales; the company also plans to work more in co-financing documentaries for the international market.

“We wish to be close to the leading content producers of our domain and hope to mesh their competence with our know-how in sales and production in the future,” said Patrick Hörl, managing director of Munich-based Autentic, which is a joint venture with Beta Film.

“Anne Hufnagel is an acknowledged expert with a great deal of experience both in international documentary sales as well as in the collaboration with specialized producers and content editors. We are absolutely delighted with this expansion of our team.”
