Vienna-based distributor Autlook Filmsales has tapped former Cinekid producer Liselot Verbrugge (pictured, left) as sales manager and promoted Andrea Hock (right) to head of TV Sales.

Verbrugge joins the company from Cinekid for Professionals, where she served as a senior producer. In her new role, she will be based in Amsterdam and oversee sales to Australia and New Zealand, Asia, MENA and Eastern Europe. In addition, Verbrugge has been tasked with developing a strand of kids’ docs for Autlook.

Prior to Cinekid, Verbrugge worked in various roles across documentary financing and production. She served as a festival and market producer at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) Forum and NFF Talent at the Dutch Film Festival, and also oversaw TV sales for the sales arm of Dutch public broadcaster NPO.

Hock, meanwhile, joined Autlook in 2009 as a festival manager. She made the move to TV sales a year later, and most recently served as TV sales manager.

The distributor is at IDFA this week with a slate of docs including Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken’s Song Of Lahore, Valentin Thurn’s 10 Billion – What’s On Your Plate and Kurt Langbein’s Land Grabbing.
