UK distributor Parade Media has forged a strategic content partnership agreement with Canadian production company Omnifilm Entertainment – helping to expand Omnifilm’s footprint in the Latin American market.
“We have followed Omnifilm and their productions for some years now, and we are absolutely thrilled to be representing their slate of premium factual content in this hugely rewarding part of the world” – Matthew Ashcroft, CEO of Parade Media
The arrangement will see Parade exclusively represent the Latam rights to key Factual Entertainment programmes from Omnifilm’s library as well as its forthcoming line-up.
Male-skewed titles include Ice Pilots Nwt. Led by veteran northern aviator “Buffalo” Joe McBryan, viewers will discover what makes each member of this motley crew tick as they battle harsh conditions, the limits of WWII-era aircraft, and sometimes one another in order to keep Buffalo airlines and their flying dreams alive. Jade Fever follows glacial deposit placer and hard rock mining efforts in the Cassiar Mountains region and Turnagain River basin of British Columbia, within 100 kilometres of Jade City.
Factual Wild titles include Wild Bear Rescue a unique, homegrown series follows the family- run operation filled to the brim with a record 40 orphaned black bear cubs. Wild Bear Rescue captures the Langens working to save and care for the many sick, starving, and injured orphan cubs as they prepare to release them as strong and healthy yearlings in remote sites across British Columbia each year.
While The Dolphin Dealer is a haunting portrait of the ethics of the billion-dollar aquatic leisure industry. Five years in the making and featuring unprecedented footage of the illicit world of dolphin trading, it profiles Christopher Porter, who infamously perpetrated the largest capture and export of dolphins in history – an act he maintains was justified.
In Factual docs, Cannabiz grants inside access to growers, gangsters and police, CannaBiz untangles the inner workings of the exploding marijuana business and raises serious questions about Canada’s drug laws.
Marijuana growers here, and in other towns across Canada, are now at a dangerous crossroads between crime and commerce, battling for a share of profits from an industry worth a staggering $20 billion dollars. Pyros follows the fast-firing world of an elite and fearless team of pyrotechnicians as they travel the globe detonating dangerous and spectacular fireworks shows, all with one goal – to become the best pyro company in the world.
Lastly in Instructional Factual Shimmy a great introduction for those who have never belly danced, and an ideal practice tool and ‘tune-up’ for intermediate and advanced dancers. Shimmy is a complete belly dance video instructional system — a low-impact fitness approach perfect for everyone, from new moms getting their sensuality back, to athletes wanting to increase flexibility and grace, to the over fifty and still sexy set looking to stay fit.
While Namaste Yoga offers a complete yoga practice for people who want to become fitter, live healthier, and be happier. With inspiring visuals and soothing music, these original movement sequences will strengthen the body and calm the mind.
“From our first meeting, Parade has impressed us with their premium content library and enthusiasm to find the right audiences for our productions in this increasingly critical market” – Amanda Riches, Director of Distribution at Omnifilm Entertainment
Parade Media will be in attendance later this month at Napte Budapest 2019.
