Tom Ortenberg is pushing into international sales and distribution and has formed an alliance with Glen Basner to assist in selling and servicing the slate.

The partners will meet with buyers at the AFM next week to discuss titles, although none was ready to announce at this stage.
“As Open Road Films grows, expanding our domestic footprint to international sales was a natural progression,” said Ortenberg.

“Glen Basner and his team are experts in global film distribution and we are thrilled to be working with them on this new venture.”
“Open Road Films has quickly become a real force in US distribution, and we at FilmNation are thrilled to help expand their reach overseas,” said Basner (pictured).

Open Road will continue to acquire titles for US distribution.

The AFM is set to run in Santa Monica from November 5-12.
