Indie producer and sales outfit XYZ Films is expanding its sales division by hiring Eric Min as Head of International Sales. Min, most recently EVP Film & TV at Aldamisa Entertainment (Chef, Machete Kills), will be based in Los Angeles and arrives just in time to oversee international sales at the Cannes market next month. XYZ partner Nate Bolotin will continue to oversee sales strategy and remain directly responsible for certain key territories and buyers, the company said.
Before Aldamisa, Min was VP International Sales and Distribution at Seven Arts Pictures. At XYZ, he is part of the latest raft of moves that includes the promotion of Mette Marie-Katz in feature and TV development, and the hire of Tamir Ardon as Director of International Distribution.
XYZ Films is now producing and handling sales for titles including the hostage thriller 6 Days with Jamie Bell, Mark Strong and Abbie Cornish; the action thriller Pilgrimage starring Jon Bernthal, Richard Armitage and Tom Holland; and Anders Walter’s I Kill Giants also produced by Chris Columbus and Man of Action Entertainment.
