by Edgar Reitz is ready to fly away with US buyers, according to ARRI World Sales’ director of sales and acquisitions, Moritz Hemminger

Recently awarded Best Film, Best Director and Best Script, the second Heimat instalment chronicling the history of the German people has already secured distribution deals with major independent companies such as Camera Film in Denmark, TriArt in Sweden, Artificial Eye in the UK and Lumiere in Benelux, and Hemminger expects to close other major deals by the end of the Cannes market

Another title premiering at the Cannes market is also under discussion with several territories: the family movie Pettson and Findus – A Little Nuisance, a Great Friendship [+see also:

. “The film has sold more than 600,000 tickets in Germany so far [via Senator], and we have several offers on the table. The film uses the same concept as The Little Ghost [+see also:

– ie, a mix of live action and animation that proves very popular with buyers,” says Hemminger. The Little Ghost has been sold to more than 30 territories (including the US) and has a final screening at the market. 

Also screening at the market are The Whole Shebang [+see also:

).

Hemminger told Cineuropa that the next step for his company – part of the German post-production and camera and lighting equipment brand – is to step up its production activities to develop its own projects. “We want to get in earlier as co-producers, and influence the entire production and positioning of the films, from script to screen,” he said.
