Bringing independent films to audiences worldwide.
In May 2013, veteran sales agent Nicolas Eschbach and producer Eric Neve launched INDIE SALES an independent, international sales and co-production company based in Paris. Their complementary professional backgrounds bring a solid, unique structure to the international film distribution business.
INDIE SALES acquires around 12 films per year, from all nationalities and genres, with a strong commercial and artistic potential. Animation has an important position in ourline-up. In 2015, INDIE SALES won the prestigious Best European Distributor of the Year award at Cartoon Movie in Lyon.
Films in our line up have been selected in Cannes, Berlinale, TIFF, San Sebastian, Venice, Locarno, Sundance, winning prestigious awards such as the Silver Shell for Best Director and New Director award in San Sebastian (The White Knights by Joachim Lafosse & The New Kid by Rudi Rosenberg) or the Cristal and Audience awards in Annecy (Oscar and Golden Globes nominee My Life as a Courgette). Our first coproduction, Suburra by Stefano Sollima has been sold in more than 50 territories.
Our catalogue consists of 35 films from the widest range possible with established directors such as Jean Pierre Améris, Amos Gitaï or Frédéric Schoendorffer as well as talented newcomers (Clément Cogitore, Louis Garrel, Daouda Coulibaly) and female directors (Alice Winocour, Justine Triet, Chloé Robichaud, Lola Doillon). We have a special focus for high profileanimation titles (Another Day of Life, My Life as a Courgette, Moomins on the Riviera).
INDIE SALES can get involved in any stage in a film’s lifespan offering tailor-made strategies to finance and launch films in a market which is growing increasingly complex. We are actively seeking co-production opportunities.
