Reporting to Valérie Vleeschhouwer, Managing Director of Mediawan Rights, Jeremy Klif* joins Estelle Bodén, Director of International Sales, Unscripted. Jeremy will strengthen the team by working alongside Estelle in developing the unscripted distribution department within Mediawan Rights.
The team has already finalized several significant sales from its Mediawan Group catalog. Time Hotel (Ardimages and 3e Œil Productions) is sold everywhere in the world. The rights have been acquired by a major US studio for the US and significant territories, by Blue Engine for the Middle East and sold to Canada.
