France’s Java Films has acquired a batch of documentaries and reportage content from Russian multilingual news network RT.
The deal hands Java European distribution rights to shows including the 1x26mins Ballet, Sweat and Tears, 1x52mins Antarctica: Ready for Winter, 1x25mins Fragile People, 1x52mins Tent City, 1x25mins Brides By Force and 1x25mins Mandrogi.
Java founder and president Roch Bozino said: “This new collaboration will be successful for both parties. We are happy that the deal means we are able to expand our catalogue and bring new audiences to RT’s high-quality productions.”
Moscow-based RT launched its English-language doc channel RTDoc in 2011, and a Russian version two years later.
