British distributor Parade Media ran an agreement with Canadian production company Omnifilm Entertainment, which will allow the UK company to expand Omnifilm’s presence in Latin America.
As stated in the agreement, Parade Media will exclusively represent the Canadian company’s current and future productions rights in the Latin American market. Some of the titles involved in the alliance are Ice pilots NWT; Payros, painting with fire; Jade Fever y Cannabiz. These last one was already acquired by DirecTV Latin America, and is also available on FTA TV. Its content is focused on exclusive access to cultivators, gangsters and the police force related to the cannabis field in Canada.
‘We have followed Omnifilm and their productions for some years now, and we are absolutely thrilled to be representing their slate of premium factual content in this hugely rewarding part of the world’, Matthew Ashcroft, CEO of Parade Media, said in a statement. Amanda Riches, Director of Distribution at Omnifilm Entertainment, added that ‘from our first meeting, Parade has impressed us with their premium content library and enthusiasm to find the right audiences for our productions in this increasingly critical market’.
