International producer/distributor Cineflix Media and Montreal prodco Ideacom International have inked a deal with a focus on the development and production of blue chip documentaries.

The partnership aims to draw on Cineflix’s production, financing and distribution resources, as well as Ideacom’s experience in Canada-France coproductions. Networks in France, Canada, the U.S., Europe and other international markets will partner with the companies for their upcoming productions.

The deal was negotiated by André Barro (pictured), Cineflix Media’s executive producer, co-productions.

“We’ve spent the past 20 years fostering strategic ties in France, and with Cineflix’s resources and global reach we are excited to take our co-production successes to all-new heights,” said Ideacom International president Josette D. Normandeau, in a statement.

“Collaborating with talented independent producers is one of the cornerstones of Cineflix’s success and part of the growth initiatives we started in 2015,” added Cineflix co-founder and co-CEO Glen Salzman. “Our time-tested and global infrastructure can readily support and service producers’ needs from development and financing, to sales and enhanced IP exploitation.”

Ideacom is set to work with Cineflix’s existing partners, including UK prodcos Twenty Six 03 Entertainment, Bucaneer Media and Seadog Productions. Cineflix also holds a co-production partnership with Barro.
