Which types of documentaries and performances are included in our catalogue – is there a prevalent theme, genre or style?
We are interested in all kinds of true documentaries (one-off and series) in their forms and topics even though some genres perform better commercially such as history, popular science, global issues documentaries or biographies. We only refuse pure wildlife. We also dedicate a specific work on the arts & culture including music (all types) and dance niche. Finally, we would like to receive more documentaries for kids.
How do we select which titles to work with?
We select the films the same way the buyers proceed: they should be recent, in HD or 4K, last 52’ even if a longer or shorter version exists & could be summarised in one sentence; then we screen the beginning of the film. Only if we feel like watching them after the 10 first minutes we may acquire them. We allow ourself to take films with a low commercial potential if we love them but inform the producer of our feeling before signing any distribution agreement. There are of course many other criteria according to each genre. For example, a scientific approach may be key for some films, celebrities for others. We finally rely on experts to check the accuracy of the storries.
