STUDIO HAMBURG ENTERPRISES AND MAVIE FILMS ANNOUNCE DISTRIBUTION PARTNERSHIP
GANGSTER COMEDY “RONNY & KLAID” AS KICK-OFF-PROJECT
Cannes (Friday, May 24, 2019): Studio Hamburg Enterprises and Berlin-based production company Mavie Films have agreed on a distribution partnership for upcoming theatrical releases and creative development. Starting point of this collaboration will be marked by the gangster/buddy comedy “Ronny & Klaid”, directed by Erkan Acar and written by Arend Remmers & Erkan Acar. The movie successfully premiered at Munich Film Festival and will hit theatres in the German-speaking part of Europe in late summer.
Aysel Yilmaz, Managing Director of Mavie Films, states: “We are honored and proud to partner with such a strong, established distributor. This collaboration will take us to the next level.”
