Directory of
INTERNATIONAL
SALES AGENTS
INTRODUCTION

This directory of international feature film sales agents provides a snapshot of companies representing Australian films around the world.

Included within are details of each seller’s acquisition policy, which markets they attend, at what stage they prefer to be approached and whether they pay
advances. There’s also a list of the Australian films that agents have handled.

The directory was compiled through contact with sellers and information derived from Screen Australia’s market reports, forums and other activities since
2012.

This directory of sales agents is in no way a recommendation or endorsement from Screen Australia. Producers should ask around before signing up with an
agent to be sure they have found the right sales partner and to check previous business dealings have gone smoothly for all parties before proceeding with
any deals. When appointing a sales agent, producers of commercially attractive titles are encouraged to negotiate for beneficial terms.

Screen Australia regularly updates this directory following key markets.
