HEAD OF SALES AND ACQUISITIONS
Memento is a select sales company designated to track and accompany high-profile, director driven independent films. We choose only 8 to 10 projects a year and can offer tailor-made synergies and business expertise. We also act in production with other companies (La Cinefacture & Memento Films Production) and in French distribution (Memento Films Distribution), according to the specific needs of each project. We have recently worked with renowned and award-winning filmmakers such as Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Asghar Farhadi, Laurent Cantet, Pawel Pawlikowski, Dominik Moll, Kelly Reichardt, Ramin Bahrani, Jia Zhang-ke, Ursula Meier and Olivier Assayas.
Amongst our upcoming projects are Still Alice by directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland starring Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart and Alec Baldwin as well as Cop Car by Jon Watts with Kevin Bacon and The Free World by first time director Jason Lew with Bryce Dallas Howard.
Memento’s young and dynamic team is devoted to promote rather than only sell with a maximum of commitment. Whether it is high-end arthouse fare with a medium-sized budget or cutting-edge low budget projects from emerging talents, we take a close look on the originality of the plot as well as the cinematographic vision of the director.
