Bankside Films has teamed with new sales outfit Protagonist Pictures to sell Bankside's catalogue titles to TV, video and ancillary markets.

Nada Cirjanic, who is in charge of the Film4 library through Protagonist, will also be in charge of the Bankside library.

Bankside will continue to acquire projects for first-run theatrical sales, of course, but once that cycle of sales is exhausted, a film will be passed to Protagonist. The deal kicks off with about 10 titles.

'Nada's vast experience in television sales is second to none and we are absolutely confident that she is the right person to represent Bankside's catalogue titles in ancillary markets. The Film4 library is one of the most prolific collections of first class independent cinema in the marketplace today which makes it an excellent home for Bankside's titles,' said Bankside's co-managing director Hilary Davis.

Cirjanic added: 'We are delighted to be appointed by Bankside to represent their growing catalogue. We believe their award winning an critically acclaimed films complement the Film4 library perfectly.'

London-based Bankside, set up in 2007 with sister production company Head Gear, has library titles including Yousaf Ali Khan's Almost Adult and Nick Broomfield's Ghosts -- both made with Channel 4 -- as well as Sparkle, Life & Lyrics, True North, The Baker and other titles.
