Cannes Bound!

Hannover House is taking on a dual-role at this year's Cannes Film Festival!  In addition to our traditional presence as a "buyer" for North American rights, the company will also be exhibiting and selling films directly to international buyers, for the first time in our 20-year history.  Over the past five years, the company has accumulated sales and licensing rights to more than thirty titles, which represent a significant revenue potential once marketed.  We have been hesitant to engage a third-party sales agency or distributor, for a variety of reasons (ranging from "the right market for launch" and the "right product as locomotives" to the obvious desire to maintain control rather than empower a third-party).

However, with significant international activity happening for our higher-end production titles, we determined that the time was finally right to begin sales activities on the company's catalog titles.
The Cannes Film Festival -- and simultaneous "Marche du Filme" market will occur from May 15 to May 26 in Cannes, France.

The Company's High-End, Theatrical Productions Include:


The other title offerings will include lower-budgeted (new) features, catalog features and direct-to-video special products.  Having our own, in-house International Sales & Licensing division is yet another milestone achievement towards the Company's goal of growing into a major, independent studio supplier.
