Venice: Bac Films Boosts Inter­na­tion­al Sales Team

Bac Films, the Paris-based film group behind the Venice Hori­zons title My Days of Glo­ry,” has bol­stered its inter­na­tion­al sales divi­sion with a new team topped by Marine Goulois and Andrea Dos Santos.

Goulois pre­vi­ous­ly worked at SND, the sales arm of the com­mer­cial net­work M6, and Les Films du Losange, while Dos San­tos worked at Orange Stu­dio and Alfama Films. They will head the inter­na­tion­al sales divi­sion together.

Goulois, who has a track record han­dling both pres­tige auteur movies such as Michael Haneke’s films at Les Films du Losange, and high-con­cept genre or com­e­dy movies at SND, will also be in charge of inter­na­tion­al acquisitions.

The new team will be com­plet­ed by Juli­ette Béchu, who will work on sales, and Marine Dorville, who will be the fes­ti­val manager.

Our ambi­tion is to con­tin­ue to devel­op an inter­na­tion­al line­up of inde­pen­dent Euro­pean cin­e­ma, high-pro­file Eng­lish-lan­guage projects and ani­mat­ed fea­ture,” said Bac Films pres­i­dent David Grumbach.

Andréa and Marine com­plete each oth­er per­fect­ly, and their expe­ri­ence in sell­ing both art house and main­stream films is high­ly invalu­able,” added Grum­bach. Since tak­ing over Bac Films in 2013, Grum­bach has led the com­pa­ny to board ambi­tious Eng­lish-lan­guage films like The Third Wave,” as well as French and for­eign-lan­guage movies from high-pro­file auteurs, notably Pao­lo Virzi’s Like Crazy” and The Leisure Seek­er,” Thomas Cailley’s Love at First Fight” and Ruben Ostlund’s Palme d’Or win­ning The Square,” which Bac released in France.

The com­pa­ny is rolling into fall with a strong slate, includ­ing Home,” an Eng­lish-lan­guage film direct­ed by actress-turned-helmer Fran­ka Potente, as well as Kaouther Ben Hania’s The Man Who Sold his Skin,” the ani­mat­ed fea­ture Yakari,” and Maimouna Doucouré’s Cuties.”

Bac Films is in Venice with Antoine de Bary’s My Days of Glo­ry” which stars Vin­cent Lacoste, Emmanuelle Devos and Noée Abi­ta. The ban­ner will be at San Sebas­t­ian with Nico­las Pariser’s Alice and the May­or” which pre­miered at Cannes’s Direc­tors Fort­night and won the Label Europa Cin­e­mas award.
