The catalog of Salt Lake City-based Incentive Capital, which includes docs on Tupac, Larry Flynt and Michael Moore, is to be distributed by Los Angeles-based sales company Recreation under a new partnership.

The international distribution deal sees Recreation, the company helmed by Ariel Veneziano (pictured), introducing media fund Incentive’s titles at MIPTV. Recreation and Incentive will also search for new acquisitions together.

Incentive is the rights holder to a catalog of more than 850 titles, including feature films, television programming, music documentaries and more. Titles include PBS’s Religions of the World, Tupac: Assassination, Larry Flynt: The Right to Be Left Alone and Manufacturing Dissent: Uncovering Michael Moore.

Music documentaries and concert films feature Kanye West, Santana, Metallica, the Beach Boys, Abba, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

“Incentive has extremely valuable assets in its film and television library, allowing us to bring a far-reaching selection of product in different genres and formats to the marketplace,” Veneziano said. “It is also a great foundation for future joint business endeavors.”

Veneziano has worked at Icon Productions and Alliance Atlantis, handling international distribution on titles such as Moore’s Bowling for Columbine.
