Sharon Harel back with new sales company


Veteran sales agent Sharon Harel has launched the new London-based sales outfit WestEnd Films with her colleagues from Capitol and ThinkFilm, Eve Schoukroun and Maja Amsellem.

Harel, who co-founded Capitol Films before selling it off to David Bergstein’s Group two years ago, intends to handle six to eight movies a year.
