MIPCOM Spotlight: Vision Films


CANNES: Vision Films is attending the market with a focus on acquiring new content, in addition to scoring sales.

“Our DVD and VOD label in North America is growing and we need to feed the pipeline with new films each month,” says Lise Romanoff, the company’s managing director and CEO of worldwide distribution. “We are looking for family, animation, action and sci-fi feature films, and documentaries with a solid niche appeal. We are also looking for anything music-related, as that has always been our sweet spot.”

As for sales, Vision Films is presenting to buyers Check Point, an action thriller about terrorist sleeper cells; A Date with Miss Fortune, a romantic comedy about cross-cultural relationships; and A Year and Change, featuring a young man who decides it’s time to make some changes in his life.

“In today’s competitive landscape, the cast is the most important element; therefore, all of our films and even our documentaries have recognizable casts,” adds Romanoff.
