New Films International

We really appreciate your help with this. We are arriving a few days early so on May 29th and on June the 2nd, if possible, Nesim would like to meet with ORT, TNT, NTV, and Red Media. He’s also interested in meeting with CTC Russia, ITM, STP Content, NTS, MR and Guspro Media. He wants to prioritize the companies that won’t be attending the market.

NFI strengthened its strategic distribution alliances recently by partnering with LIONSGATE-TISA to distribute the NFI catalog on TV and VOD in Latin America.  Previously, NFI participated in a six-year all-TV rights output deal with MGM throughout Latin America, and signed an all-rights output deal with WARNER BROS. in Japan.
