Folivari Launches Distribution Arm


French animation company Folivari has unveiled its new distribution arm, Folivari International, headed up by Dandelooo alum Melissa Vega.

Folivari International is beginning with the distribution of Folivari originals, including Nino Dino. The distributor is also developing its slate of acquisitions around animated content with strong international potential.

The new arm’s start coincides with Folivari’s 10th anniversary. Vega, former acquisitions and international sales manager at Dandelooo, is co-founder, alongside Damien Brunner, Sarah Delmas and Thibaut Ruby.

In 2018, the Folivari team set up an animation studio FOST, which specializes in 2D animation and preproduction for 3D projects.

Vega, head of distribution and acquisition at Folivari International, said: “Folivari and FOST have long been on my radar as one of the most major and trusted animation companies and studios in France. It is an honor to join the team to not only ensure that its award-winning original content reaches more audiences globally but to also use my experience to source the most high-quality animated content for Folivari International’s exciting slate in 2024 and beyond.”
