Cineflix Media partners with Strong Island Films
MUMBAI: Cineflix Media has formed a strategic partnership with Strong Island Films, the television and film production company set up by veteran executive producer and show runner Rob Dorfmann and documentary filmmaker Cindy DePasquale.
The overall agreement covers development, production, and distribution. Cineflix will have an exclusive option to co-produce new projects developed by Strong Island Films. Cineflix will have an exclusive first-look to distribute Strong Island Films’ North American content.
Dorfmann and DePasquale joined forces to set up Strong Island Films less than a year ago. Since then, they have secured development deals with HGTV, Investigation Discovery and FremantleMedia North America, and options on intellectual properties, talent and websites. They have numerous shows in development and several projects are up for consideration at networks in the US and the UK. Strong Island Films will be based in Cineflix’s New York production hub.
Cineflix said that the overall deal highlights its strategy to diversify and grow its business through innovative partnerships with top creative talent. It will increase the supply of programming to its distribution division through a variety of content pipelines. This follows the very successful launch of new indie Buccaneer Media in 2013, Cineflix’s joint venture with leading UK producer Tony Wood.
Cineflix Media co-founder, co-CEO Glen Salzman said, “We are thrilled to be working with Strong Island Films. Cindy and Rob, two powerhouse producers, are known for creating innovative and highly rated content, and with the new projects they have already in development we’re off to a great start. Today’s announcement illustrates our ongoing strategy to support and collaborate with talented indies to produce hit shows while diversifying our portfolio.”
Dorfmann said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have partnered with Cineflix. They’ve given Strong Island Films the financial support and creative freedom to allow us do what we do best – produce amazing programming. It’s a win/win situation”.
