Paris-based Backup Media, a film consultancy and investor, has unveiled the first financing deals put through on three titles by B Media Global.
Variety reports that, launched last year by Backup, B Media Global is a film fund aimed at bringing Gallic financial know-how and clout to non-French movies made around the globe.
In one of its earliest moves, B Media Global has fully financed Cold in July, the next film by American director Jim Mickle, hot off his English-language remake, We Are What We Are, pictured, which bowed at Sundance. He also directed Mulberry Street and Stakeland.
Produced by Linda Moran and Rene Bastian at New York-based Belladonna, Cold is a character-driven thriller. Mickle rolls on Cold in July.
