Animation studio Dygra Films has opened an in-house international sales arm, headed by Tania Pinto Da Cunha, VARIETY reports.
The new arm will focus on Dygra productions, starting with its CG toon, THE SPIRIT OF THE FOREST, set to delivery in early 2007. Next up will be the family comedy, HOLLY NIGHT!, due for Christmas 2007.
Dygra's A MIDSUMMER'S DREAM, which opened last summer, will continue to be handled by Lumina Films.
"Dygra is growing and we think it's the right moment to create our own international sales department," said Pinto da Cunha, who became exec producer in March 2005.
