South African hit producer launches film sales division


Producer, Tendeka Matatu launches Ten10 Sales - the sales arm of his Cape Town based production company Ten10 Films. Ten10 is a boutique sales agency that represents local South African films in South Africa and across the continent.

In addition it will look towards securing other African titles for the South African market.

The company has an impressive roster which includes the acclaimed gangster thriller, Jerusalema and the new romantic comedy White Wedding which releases in cinemas nationwide on 29th April. After many years producing South African films Matatu has built strong relationships with local distributors and has been able to secure groundbreaking deals with Theatrical, DVD and Television enterprises. He has also formed key alliances in areas of, marketing, press, publicity and new media.

Attendance rates and box office for local movies are extremely low and Ten10 Sales is born out of the realisation that many emerging and experienced local producers have very little know-how when it comes to sales, distribution and marketing both locally and internationally.

Ten10 Sales’ aim is to provide a vital link between producers and distributors, and will ensure that local producers get the best possible deals for their films across the Theatrical/DVD and TV platforms. Further to this the company will also act as consultant to producers in their marketing and release strategy, as well as provide guidance on selecting the appropriate international film festivals to showcase their films.

Ten10 Sales is actively looking at new projects and is keen to forge relationships with emerging producers. For further information contact Joy Sapieka on 073 212 5492
