BERLIN, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After 2016's successful cooperation on DIRTY GRANDPA and ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME, Freeman Film Trade & Finance, Ltd. and MONUMENTAL PICTURES GmbH announced today that they have partnered up once again to buy four films.
Andre Boissier quote: "We were gratified to see the explosive reaction to ATOMIC BLONDE at CinemaCon and are thrilled to be expanding our Eastern European distribution activities to Ukraine. We can't think of a better partner for our product than Andrey Dyachenko (UFD) and Polina Schlicht (MONUMENTAL PICTURES) and are confident that this film along with MOLLY's GAME, DEN OF THIEVES and TAXI 5 are in the best hands."
MONUMENTAL PICTURES is a film licensing company run by Polina Schlicht. Although based in Berlin, the company is deeply rooted in Ukraine because of its shareholders' business activities and strategic cooperation with the second-largest Ukrainian distributor UFD (Ukrainian Film Distribution, headed by Andrey Dyachenko). As the exclusive distributor of 20th Century Fox in Ukraine, UFD has successfully released in the past international and local blockbusters from other major and independent studios.
Polina Schlicht, Managing Director of MONUMENTAL PICTURES quotes: "Ukraine is one of the biggest markets in Eastern Europe. Having the same population as Poland, it has the potential to become a significant European market. Politically and economically, everything is leading to a self-sufficient Ukraine. The situation is similar to the development of the Baltic States ten years ago when companies there began to buy separately from CIS."
MONUMENTAL PICTURES started to acquire film rights (all rights) in 2016. Its licensors include companies like Freeman, IM Global, Voltage, Odin's Eye and Global Screen. Next acquisitions are planned during Cannes Film Festival next month.
