Vision Distribution, the Italian theatrical distributor jointly operated by pay-TV operator Sky Italia and five prominent Italian production companies, is expanding into international film sales with a new company called Vision Distribution International, to be headed by veteran sales agent Catia Rossi.

The new sales company will launch at the Berlin fest’s European Film Market in February.

Vision - Distribution - Sky - Forces - Cattleya

Vision Distribution was set up in 2016 when Sky joined forces with ITV-owned Cattleya, Fremantle’s Wildside, Lucisano Media Group, Palomar, and Indiana Production which are among the country’s leading production outfits, to create an innovative content alliance and a theatrical distribution arm for the Italian unit of the pan-European paybox now owned by Comcast.

They are now Italy’s 4th largest domestic distributor, and the 8th overall, with 26 titles released in 2019, four of which among the top ten grossers at the Italian box office last year. Vision Distribution has a service agreement with Universal which handles physical distribution of their titles in Italian cinemas, while they handle the marketing.
