Jour2Fête buys Doc & Film International
- Étienne Ollagnier and Sarah Chazelle’s company has snapped up the outfit that Daniela Elstner has just stepped down from; Elstner will now serve as managing director of UniFrance
Jour2Fête is continuing its growth spurt. Founded in 2006 and initially only active as a distributor in France, the Paris-based company run by Étienne Ollagnier and Sarah Chazelle is now also involved in co-production and, since 2012, has gradually made a name for itself in the international sales sector, an activity that it will reinforce thanks to the acquisition of Doc & Film International, which has just lost its iconic CEO Daniela Elstner, who recently stepped down and was appointed managing director of UniFrance (the promotional body for French film abroad).
Over the next few months, Jour2Fête and Doc & Film International will be consolidating their teams and their catalogues. The international sales division of the new entity will be headed up by Clémence Lavigne and Samuel Blanc.
