VIS Aligns with Infinity Hill for Spanish-Language Films


Viacom International Studios (VIS) has signed an exclusive deal with Infinity Hill to develop and produce a slate of Spanish-language feature films.

With a focus on Spanish-language movie production, the partnership will see the projects filmed around the globe featuring international talent both in front of and behind the camera.

Infinity Hill, a new production company founded by Axel Kuschevatzky, Phin Glynn and Cindy Teperman, is making its debut with the action thriller The Doorman, directed by Japan’s Ryûhei Kitamura. The company also co-produced The Intruder (El Prófugo), directed by Natalia Meta and currently in official competition at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Federico Cuervo, senior VP and head of Viacom International Studios, said: “This deal empowers us to increase our development of high-quality, long-form content generating more IPs for VIS. We know the talent of Infinity Hill’s producers and what they can bring to a studio like ours in terms of high-end content.”

Kuschevatzky added: “For a rising film company like Infinity Hill, setting up a deal with such a giant as Viacom International Studios is a great opportunity and a marvelous way to create new films aimed for both local and global audiences. Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, with 460 million native speakers. So, there is a huge community there with a big demand for films in its own language.”
