MIPTV Spotlight: Vision Films


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

“We are seeking acquisitions for our domestic division, which releases between two to four films each month across DVD, VOD and TV,” says Lise Romanoff, Vision’s managing director and CEO of worldwide distribution. “We have a very healthy appetite for both feature films and documentaries.”

In terms of sales, Vision is presenting to buyers Nessie & Me, about a lake creature who saves a town, along with the nature film Aldabra: Once Upon an Island, which tells the story of an exotic but disappearing isle.

On the music front, Vision is showcasing a new David Bowie profile and the David Hasselhoff stage show Last Night a DJ Saved My Life. Romanoff adds, “We choose films with diverse and universal appeal.”
