9 Story opens Dublin-based distribution operation

Looking to expand its European footprint, 9 Story has launched a new global distribution operation in Dublin, Ireland at Brown Bag Films' flagship studio.
October 21, 2016

Delving further into worldwide growth opportunities after last year’s acquisition of Irish studio Brown Bag Films, Toronto’s 9 Story Media Group has launched 9 Story Distribution International, a new operation at Brown Bag’s recently opened Dublin-based flagship studio.

The launch follows on the heels of 9 Story’s recent appointment of former Aardman Animations exec Alix Wiseman, who stepped into the newly created UK-based role of VP of business development and acquisitions for EMEA.

With Wiseman taking the lead for 9 Story in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, new broadcast deals were quickly secured across EMEA for Spiffy Pictures co-production Nature Cat.

Looking globally, 9 Story also recently inked broadcast, digital and licensing agreements for hit brand Wild Kratts in China.
