UK distributor Cineflix Rights has acquired a pair of titles from Canadian producer Yap Films and South African prodco Hive Content ahead of next week’s Realscreen Summit in Washington DC.
Adding to its catalog of brands including Food Factory, Food Factory USA and Home Factory, the London-based distributor has bought Yap Films’ Battle Factory (14 x 30 minutes), which is to explore the secret world of military and front-line gear factories around the world.
Elsewhere, the company has acquired Food, Booze & Tattoos (pictured above; 13 x 30 minutes) from Hive Content. The series follows host Brett Rogers as he travels around South Africa, trying out restaurants and microbreweries as well as tattoo parlors.
The deals were negotiated by Anthony Kimble, VP of coproductions and North American acquisitions at Cineflix Rights, who is attending the Summit alongside Lucinda Gergley-Garner, senior VP of sales and acquisitions for North America, as well as CEO of Rights at Cineflix Media Chris Bonney.
“As Cineflix Rights continues to grow our third-party slate, we’ll be at Realscreen looking for more content to acquire, particularly in the lifestyle genre and specifically property, food, and travel programming,” said Bonney in a statement.
