Former TrustNordisk sales agent launches LevelK
by Annika Pham
Tine Klint has launched the international sales company LevelK and its innovative online secure service aimed at facilitating viewing opportunities for world distributors.
Klint, who has spent the last ten years working for Trust Film Sales, Nordisk International Film Sales, and then the resulting merger TrustNordisk, intends to handle five to six feature films a year, plus quality documentaries and TV series. All products are promoted on her secured website. In the restricted online ‘Buyers lounge’ section, distributors can access marketing materials and view trailers as well as stream entire films. Klint can collect invaluable information from her website, such as when the distributors view the product and if it is of any interest to them. If the film is not available in a certain territory, the film screening option for that territory is then locked, which immediately informs distributors of the product’s availability. “In today‘s very competitive marketplace, the most important thing for distributors is to have quick access to films. With this à la carte service, they have a chance to view films whenever and wherever they want,“ Klint told Cineuropa at the last regional film market, the Baltic Event in Tallinn.
The new Label K’s lineup features the Norwegian film Vegas [+see also:

Danish titles include the multi-awarded documentary Prostitution Behind the Veil by Nahid Persson, Johan Melin’s s low-budget feature film Prophecy, produced under the Danish Film Institute’s New Danish Screen scheme, and two films released domestically last October: the family film Storm by Giacomo Campeotto (over 102,000 admissions) and No Time for Love (Simon & Malou in Danish). Klint also picked up international distribution rights on two successful TV series produced by Cosmo Film for TV2 Denmark: Anna Pihl and Lærkevej..
