Cinar Library Travels To Africa
Cinar's library of over 2,200 half-hours of family programming will soon be traveling to new territories thanks to a distribution agreement with VGI Entertainment Ltd., a UK-based distribution company. Under the terms of the deal, VGI will distribute Cinar titles such as CAILLOU, ARTHUR, MONA THE VAMPIRE and THE BUSY WORLD OF RICHARD SCARY in sub-Saharan Africa. "We are very pleased to add VGI's expertise and knowledge to the Cinar team," said Louis Fournier, head of distribution for Cinar. "We are confident that our fascinating cast of characters will find a welcome home in Africa. It's an exciting new market for our products and it looks extremely positive from all angles." VGI Entertainment Ltd. will be representing Cinar at Sithengi, the Southern African International Film and Television Market, in Cape Town, from November 10 to 14, 2002.
