Gunpowder & Sky Acquires FilmBuff


LOS ANGELES: Gunpowder & Sky has acquired the independent content sales and distribution company FilmBuff.

With the purchase, Gunpowder & Sky now has the ability to help its partners with the development, financing, production, distribution and marketing of their films, series and short-form content. Operating out of Los Angeles and New York, FilmBuff will be rebranded as Gunpowder & Sky Distribution, and will be led by former FilmBuff CEO Janet Brown in her new role as executive VP of distribution.

“Janet and her team have a great track record as a collaborative, transparent and forward-looking distributor,” said Floris Bauer, the president of Gunpowder & Sky. “With the acquisition of FilmBuff we have now realized our early ambition of operating a soup-to-nuts studio, helping to bring to life the vision of our creative partners, and distribute and market content globally across platforms.”

“I am thrilled to be part of Gunpowder & Sky, which has positioned itself to be a forward-looking studio that takes risks with new creators, formats and content,” said Brown. “It was a no-brainer for FilmBuff to join forces with a revolutionary studio that brings the same appetite for innovation and creativity to content creation that we bring to content marketing and distribution.”
