Global Screen is the world sales unit of Bavaria Film and Telepool. 100 years of experience and 15 000 titles make us a European sales leader.
Global Screen GmbH is a joint venture between Bavaria Film GmbH (with its former labels Bavaria Film International, Bavaria Media Television and united docs) and Telepool GmbH for sales & distribution of TV and theatrical programming outside of German-speaking territories.
Global Screen's shareholders are Bavaria Media GmbH, a one hundred per cent subsidiary of Bavaria Film, and Telepool GmbH. Together, they hold the rights to one of the largest film catalogues in Europe: In addition to the films of Bavaria Film Group, Bavaria Media has distribution deals with pubcasters WDR and SWR. Telepool contributes content from German pubcasters BR and MDR and Swiss broadcaster SRF – Swiss Radio and Television. Both partners have a large number of deals with national and international licensees. Above that Global Screen distributes programming of pubcasters HR and RBB and of ARD’s acquisition and production arm Degeto.
Global Screen's experienced and multifaceted Acquisitions Team is always on the lookout for new TV and theatrical projects with international potential.
Thanks to its vast and varied program catalogue, Global Screen can offer tailor-made solutions for global buyers. The experienced staff on Sales Team Cinema and Sales Team TV know how to sell content in all genres to every territory and distribution channel – from big-budget blockbusters to lovingly crafted 3D animation, award-winning arthouse fare to attention-grabbing investigative exposés and high-value nature and travel documentaries.
With our S&D team and professional network, we're big enough to keep up with a competitive market, and small enough to give our customers the personal attention they deserve.
