MIPTV Spotlight: MarVista Entertainment

CANNES: The holiday-themed Lifetime movie An En Vogue Christmas is one of 12 new film propositions that MarVista Entertainment is presenting.

“It’s a feel-good movie about learning to forgive, and it features music you will want to dance to,” says Vanessa Shapiro, MarVista’s executive VP of distribution.

Also part of that movie mix is Pants on Fire, which premiered on Disney XD, and the bittersweet love story Meet My Valentine.

“In 2014, we launched MarVista Digital Entertainment, which has really got off to a great start, as we have secured deals with major U.S. platforms, as well as significant on-demand placement with cable and satellite providers,” Shapiro says. “We’ll also be actively looking for titles at MIPTV for our U.S. digital-distribution needs.”
