Kew acquires Content Media Corp

The venture has bought six entertainment companies and their combined libraries for $104m, creating content hubs in Los Angeles, London, Toronto and New York.

Content Media Corporation is one of six content companies in the deal. Kew Media Group has acquired each one entirely. The other companies are Architect Films, Bristow Global Media, Frantic Films Corporation, Media Headquarters Film & Television, and Our House Media.

It is understood Content remains unaffected heading into Berlin, where sales titles include recent Sundance premiere Cries From Syria (pictured).

Content’s management team will stay in place under CEO John Schmidt, who joins the Kew board. CFO Geoff Webb will also serve as Kew’s CFO and head of legal and business affairs Erick Kwak will assume the same role at Kew.

The Kew platform will include five companies controlled by Content: Aito Media Oy, Campfire Film & Television, Collins Avenue Productions, Jigsaw Productions, and Spirit Digital Media Limited.
