Federation Studios’ distribution division has been bolstered by the lineup of Calt Distribution, the international sales branch of Robin & Co. that was created 15 years ago. As part of this move, Lucile Avezard, formerly International Sales Manager for Calt Distribution, is joining Federation Studios’ sales division, co-headed by Monica Levy and Guillaume Pommier.
With the addition of Calt Distribution’s programs, Federation’s line-up expends to include premium programs across all genres: short format, fiction, documentaries, shows and concerts. The company is also bringing additional savoir faire to the table in the fields of comedy and filming of live shows, two areas in which Calt enjoys renowned expertise.
Calt Distribution took home last month the prestigious Unifrance Audiovisual Export Award for “Legacy,” the groundbreaking documentary directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Produced by Hope Production for M6, with the participation of Omega and the GoodPlanet Foundation, “Legacy” has been sold on all continents, to public and private channels alike, as well as platforms such as Prime Video in the United States and the United Kingdom.
“Legacy” is one of Calt Distribution’s gems alongside various other Robin & Co. products, including “Kaamelott” and “Camera Café.” The latter has been adapted locally in over 27 countries and is still very much alive and well, with new seasons and feature films to its credit.
