ARRI Worlsales is reporting a thriving market for PLOE: You Never Fly Alone at the Marché du Film in Cannes. The film which is in pre-production is expected to be delivered by end of 2015 was a subject to a bidding war for the Russian and S-Korean market with Big Movies (RU) and Smile Entertainment (KO) finally securing the distribution rights for their markets. Moritz Hemminger, sales director of ARRI Worldsales is quoted in Cineurope interview: “We had bidding wars from Russia and South Korea; it’s very rare to close so many deals so early on a project,”
Screen Daily reported of these sales , both in the printed publication in Cannes as well as their electronic version on-line. Variety also reported on this highly unusual interest on such a early stage in an animated film project.
We are extreamily proud of these achievements so early into the production of our upcoming film and look forward to follow up on this initial success in more markets as we progress with our film.
