Roger leaves PANA TV to Set up saniFilms
PANA TV's CEO, Mandy Roger, has left the African online streaming service, to set up her own company, saniFilms, an African content aggregator and distributor.
Roger, whose previous roles have included stints at M-Net and BBC Worldwide, says of her new outfit: "We acquire non-exclusive distribution rights and pitch the content to all broadcasters, VOD platforms, mobile operators and telcos worldwide."
sanFilms currently has around 600 feature films from all African countries in various languages, as well as 60 television series. Roger is also concentrating on building the factual catalogue and is happy to represent anyone's content and negotiate deals on their behalf.
"We also consult with various clients, building bespoke packages for channels and platforms of specifically selected African content as required," adds Roger.
"And all African content is considered, whether it be on or off continent, so saniFilms will also take on board Afro-Brazilian, African American and Caribbean content," Roger concludes.
