Barcelona-based producer and rights broker MediaPro has acquired French production services outfit Video Communication France (VCF) for Euros 15m.

The purchase forms part of MediaPro's international expansion. VCF is one of France's leading mobile TV production service providers.

MediaPro has offices in Spain, Portugal, Argentina and the US, where it offers production services, and produces and brokers rights for thematic channels and independent TV programming. It runs joint TV production venture Media Carlton with the UK's Carlton Communications for the Spanish TV market.

In cinema, MediaPro owns 12% of Madrid-based production outfit Esicma and maintains a co-production accord with Elias Querejeta PC, backing recent feature films such as Javier Bardem-starrer Mondays In The Sun (Los Lunes Al Sol).
