Odyssey Pictures to focus on content acquisitions & licensing deals at Cannes


MUMBAI: Odyssey Pictures Corporation will be exhibiting at the Cannes Film Market at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in conjunction with the company’s strategic financial advisor, Siguiente Capital.


Odyssey will be actively looking to make content acquisitions and licensing deals to add to Odyssey’s growing library of children’s and general interest programming. Siguiente will be working closely with Odyssey to review and analyze specific terms regarding any potential involvement by Odyssey in co-production and international licensing and rights acquisition deals.


Odyssey will be exhibiting at two locations: Palais Niveau 01 — 24.11. at the Palais des Festivals and the main screening area for the Film Festival, as well as at Riviera H.14, a ‘Producer’s Booth’ the company is co-hosting with strategic partner Veland Films to provide a forum for film producers to present international co-production projects.


"We are excited about our increased presence at Cannes this year. In addition to taking booths, we will be fully staffed and plan to be very active in the buying and selling of content rights. Siguiente’s financial counsel will be very helpful in that respect," said Odyssey president and CEO John Foster.


Siguiente is a European-based venture capital firm with a focus on emerging media and online marketing technologies. Odyssey has had a close business relationship with Siguiente since 2008, which has led to Siguiente becoming a significant financial resource for Odyssey.
