Munich/Stuttgart, October 13th 2016 - Palatin Media Film- & Fernseh GmbH of Munich has taken a 25.1% stake in Kinostar Filmverleih GmbH. Palatin acquired the shares from Kinostar Theater GmbH.
In addition to acting as CEO of Palatin, Bernd Schlötterer will join the Stuttgart-based film distributor’s management team as a further managing director.
As one of the top ten independent film companies in Germany, Kinostar Filmverleih GmbH specializes in the distribution of Hollywood films, German and Turkish movies, and Bolshoi Ballet productions. The company is also a leader in the worldwide video-on-demand (VOD) market, where Kinostar aggregates content for all major platforms, including iTunes and Google, and exploits both its own licenses and those of its licensors.
“We are very excited about this partnership with Palatin, which will greatly benefit both companies,” says Kinostar Managing Director Michael Roesch.
“This stake in Kinostar will allow us to directly monetize our products on the film market and worldwide VOD markets. Kinostar in turn will benefit from our strength in exploiting content for television and on other monetization platforms,” says Palatin Managing Director Bernd Schlötterer.
These major synergies were not the only reason the two companies joined forces, however: “We see huge opportunities for growth, particularly in the market for European films,” states Matthias Roesch, “And we will unlock this potential together.”
Bernd Schlötterer adds, “We are extremely pleased to be debuting our partnership at MIPCOM and AFM.”
The alliance between Palatin and Kinostar is already producing initial results: In addition to the launch of “Surprise,” the new film by Oscar winner Mike van Diem, Kinostar will bring the French film “Le Miracle de Lourdes” to theaters as alternative content on December 11.
TORONTO, ON. (September 8, 2017)— Don Carmody Television (DCTV) today announced that Irish public broadcaster RTÉ has come on board as co-producer of “Rare Earth,” a four-part post-Brexit environmental and political drama from DCTV and Bandit Films to be shot in Ireland. Casting is ongoing with production set to take place in early 2018 for a fall 2018 premiere on RTÉ One. Don Carmody and David Cormican of DCTV will executive produce the series with Johnny Gogan who is also on board as showrunner and director. Palatin Media will handle international sales for the official co-production between Canada and Ireland.
Set in the Irish north-south border landscape, “Rare Earth” brings a new role model-that of Environmental Enforcer- to television. The stakes couldn’t be higher for Alice Waters, a conflicted character with a violent and troubled past. Alice assumes the role of Environmental Officer of her cash strapped border city and its wild and at times lawless hinterland. Despite her emerging official capacity, she never quite manages to leave her wayward past behind her.
“’Rare Earth’ is a true character-driven story set against the rich beauty and culture of Ireland that our protagonist is working to preserve,” said Don Carmody, Executive Producer and Chairman of DCTV. “The ground-breaking series reflects the current political and environmental landscape in Ireland, but is timely for all of us.”
‘RTÉ is delighted to support this new Irish drama, which will be available to our RTÉ One audience in autumn 2018,’ said Dermot Horan, Acting Managing Director Television/Director of Production & Acquisitions, RTÉ.
“I’m looking forward to revisiting the Irish border world previously brought to the screen in feature films Mapmaker (2001) and Black Ice (2013)” said Showrunner and Executive Producer, Johnny Gogan, Bandit Films. “Brexit has brought this back-water into international prominence and our series takes the pulse and opens up that world.”
“Palatin is proud to once again partner with DCTV to bring this relevant drama to television,” said Bernd Schlötterer, Founder, Palatin Media. “We look forward to sharing this timely story with audiences worldwide.”
Additional funding has been secured through Ireland's Western Development Commission, with the country's Section 481 Tax Credit an important cornerstone.
Munich/London, 11th October 2016 – Bernd Schlötterer’s Palatin Media and Content Media Corporation have established a new partnership, working together to source and acquire shows as well as to co-distribute in the international market. Their first joint campaign includes Banger Film´s Hip-Hop Evolution, a 4-part high end documentary about the foundation and evolution of Hip-Hop music for TMN/HBO Canada, and Netflix thriller Between.
Hip-Hop Evolution, the new 4 x 60’ series from the award-winning Banger Films, will launch at MIPCOM. In Hip-Hop Evolution, produced for TMN/HBO Canada and directed by Darby Wheeler, acclaimed rapper and journalist Shad Kabango sets out to uncover the foundations of hip-hop music and its evolution from New York house party experiment to one of the most dominant sounds in music. Delivering a compelling blend of exclusive interviews, archival film and music, Hip-Hop Evolution follows Shad as he meets the DJs and MCs who set the template for all to follow, including Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, Ice-T, De La Soul and DMC. Along the way, Shad realizes that hip-hop’s success is only part of the story: from the boroughs of NYC to the ghettos of LA and beyond, it created a new voice for the disenfranchised.
Scot McFadyen of Banger Films stated, “We’re excited to be working with both Palatin and Content on getting this important project out to the world. Hip-Hop has become a global phenomenon and this documentary series is the first to focus on its inception. We wanted to make something that appeals not only to fans of Hip-Hop but fans of music in general, and I think we succeeded.”
Hip-Hop Evolution is produced with the participation of Rogers Cable Network Fund, Ontario Media Development Corporation, Rogers Documentary Fund, Canada Media Fund and Bell Fund.
Also set to be showcased at MIPCOM is the 12 x one-hour sci-fi drama series Between, a DCTV & Mulmur Production for Netflix. Set in the idyllic town of Pretty Lake, this compelling thriller explores the unpredictable power vacuum that results when, after a mysterious virus kills everyone over 21, the government puts the town under quarantine. Cut off and under siege, the town’s remaining inhabitants are left to fend for themselves – all while dealing with the fear that whatever caused so many deaths may return.
Bernd Schlötterer, Founder of Palatin Media, commented, “Greg and his team at Content Media share our values and ambitions on delivering strong content to broadcasters and platforms around the world. We’re very pleased to partner on the distribution of Hip-Hop Evolution and Between in what we are expecting to be the first of many successful collaborations.”
Greg Phillips, President of Distribution at Content Media, added, “In this ever-evolving business landscape it’s increasingly beneficial to work together and share expertise and experience to maximize the international potential of content. From sourcing globally-relevant programming to providing impeccable customer service, I’m confident that we will make a very effective team and I look forward to working with Palatin Media on the first joint campaigns.”

München, 27. September 2016 - Palatin Media freut sich bekannt zu geben, dass aus unserem aktuellen deutschsprachigen Angebot die Verfilmung der weltweit einzigen autorisierten Papst-Biografie DER JESUIT PAPST FRANZISKUS in der Kategorie Non English US Prime Time sowie die kanadische Krimiserie 19-2 in der Kategorie Best Drama für den International Emmy nominiert sind.
DER JESUIT PAPST FRANZISKUS basiert auf der einzigen autorisierten Papst-Biografie und erzählt die Lebensgeschichte von Jorge Mario Bergoglio, der im Alter von 76 Jahren als erster Jesuit und erster Südamerikaner zum Papst ernannt wird - in einer der kritischsten Zeiten der Kirche, geprägt von Korruption, Missbrauch und Vertrauensverlust.
19-2 ist eine facettenreiche, charakterbasierte Krimi-Serie, die die Realität des Polizistenalltags einfängt. Im Zentrum stehen Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes) und Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso), genauer gesagt die Besatzung des zweiten Streifenwagens des 19. Reviers in Montreal. Die preisgekrönte Serie geht mittlerweile in die 4. Staffel.
