September 28, 2016—After more than a decade of producing and distributing large format films, 3D Entertainment Films has built a substantial library of high performing titles. Productions include: Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean 3D, Dolphins And Whales 3D, Sharks 3D, Ocean Wonderland 3D, Kenya: Animal Kingdom 3D and Air Racers 3D. Their library was expanded to include distribution of the highly acclaimed Sea Rex 3D: Journey to a Prehistoric World co-produced by N3D Land Productions and Mantello Brothers Productions.
3D Entertainment Films has selected K2 Communications to handle worldwide distribution of its large format library. "When we started in 2002 we had no idea we would stay that long in this exciting industry,” said Francois Mantello, 3D Entertainment Films' CEO and President. “During this time we met amazing people and some of them became friends. We will now focus on the production side and we also have several other business ventures that we are interested in pursuing, including the launch of a new ocean-themed feature film. After all these years spent distributing these movies in the industry, we wanted to entrust our library to the company that we felt was the best and most passionate in our industry. We are thrilled to be working with K2 Communications and are confident that they will do an outstanding job. All distribution activities will transition to K2 over the next few weeks and be fully in place by the Toronto GSCA 2016 conference."
According to K2's president, Mark Kresser, "When Francois and Jean-Jacques Mantello approached K2 with this opportunity, we were honored to be considered. We saw their library as complementary to our current distribution business and were confident that we could do a great job for them and keep their high distribution standards. We are pleased to have been selected by the Mantello Brothers to manage the future global distribution of their library."
