New Europe Film Sales is a boutique world sales company based in Warsaw, Poland. We are proud of our small, carefully-selected catalogue of feature films and shorts. Each one of them is very precious for us. Our films regularly open at key festivals, such as Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Toronto, Sundance, Rotterdam, Karlovy Vary and Tribeca and get worldwide distribution. Our team regularly attends leading co-production meetings and film and TV markets. We’re very happy to hear from you if you have a great film project or if you’re looking for quality content to acquire. Some of our recent highlights include LAMB (Cannes, A24 release in the US), RAMS (Un Certain Regard Winner), SUMMER 1993 (Berlinale’s Silver Bear) or THE DISCIPLE (Venice winner, Netflix Original).
NEFS recently joined forces with Oscar-winning producer Ewa Puszczyńska (IDA, COLD WAR) and Klaudia Śmieja (HIGH LIFE, GARETH JONES) and created NEM.corp – production company focused on developing and co-producing projects of both local and international talents.
New Europe has a great track record for supporting auteur cinema and unique voices. We see ourselves as talent spotters. Most of our films come from first- and second-time directors, some of whom we’ve been following for many years during their careers as short film makers. We work very closely with our filmmakers and buyers and only acquire a small number of films that we love and believe in. That ensures that maximum attention and exposure is given to each film that we get involved with. New Europe Film Sales has also a leading position in the short film market, where it discovers new talents and works with great directors such as Ruben Östlund, Tomek Baginski, Sameh Alaa and Niki Lindroth von Bahr, among others.
CREATIVITY & TRANSPARENCY
We put strong emphasis on the marketing of our films – from traditional materials, such as posters and trailers to alternative campaigns involving social media, viral materials and creative PR – we are making sure that we can find the best way of presenting the directors’ vision in a way that is attractive to the market.
Our key goals are transparency and total support of the producers’ needs. We want to build long-lasting, sustainable relationships with our partners. Our models include 25% income corridors during P&A recoupment for producers and cost-effective P&A campaigns.
