Paris, France, and Beijing, China – Leading European CGI studio, TeamTO announced a distribution agreement with Taikong Works for all rights to its theatrical feature film Yellowbird in China. The maverick deal is the first to come from TeamTO’s Beijing office established in June 2016. The agreement will see Taikong Works distribute Yellowbird throughout China across all platforms including cinemas, digital media and traditional broadcast; a theatrical release is planned for Chinese New Year next year. Taikong Works – a strong brand and licensing entity in China – will also roll out ancillary rights and promotions alongside the film release.
“Our partnership with TeamTO represents our belief in the massive potential of the Chinese film market, and the opportunity for Chinese investment in the international film industry,” commented Kexin Liu, Co-founder of Taikong Works.
