Paramount to Distribute Vertigo in Spain27 Sep, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Paramount Home Media Distribution under a new agreement will begin distributing DVDs and Blu-ray Discs from Vertigo Films in Spain beginning in October.
Paramount currently distributes Universal Pictures International Entertainment’s titles in the region, as well as its own library. Upcoming Vertigo films include Spring Breakers directed by Harmony Corine, To the Wonder by Terrence Malick and Rust and Bone by Jacques Audiard. Catalog titles include Jean Pierre Jeunet’s Amelie and David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive.
“It´s an exciting new challenge for Vertigo and Wild Bunch to create a new video label of our own with Paramount in Spain,” said Vertigo GM Andrés Martin. “As the country's leading distributor, they have a very professional team that is truly knowledgeable about our product line featuring the best current independent films. Just as Wild Side is the reference label in France for this type of cinema, Vertigo embarks on a new adventure, alongside Paramount, to become the indie label of choice in Spain.”
Darren Goode, GM of Paramount Home Media Distribution Spain, added: “We are delighted to be working with Vertigo Films and believe that this agreement will open new horizons and synergies for both companies. We have an extremely efficient organization in place in Spain that is well-prepared to seamlessly integrate the addition of Vertigo’s home entertainment products.”
