Cineflix Rights signs first-look deal with Curious Films

Britain’s Youngest Football Boss

Cineflix Rights has closed a first-look development deal with UK indie Curious Films.

The partnership gives Cineflix Rights exclusive distribution rights to Curious Films’ new slate, working together with the producer to help drive its international profile to generate new commissions and maximise global sales.

Launched 18 months ago by Dov Freedman and Charlie Russell, the company’s recent output spans genres and broadcasters including Chris Packham: 7.7 Billion People & Counting (BBC2), Charlotte Church: My Family And Me (Channel 4), and Britain’s Youngest Football Boss (BBC3), which was acquired by Cineflix Rights in 2019.

Curious is currently in production on projects including Frank Gardner: Being Frank (BBC2) and Squad Goals, a six-part follow up series with West Ham United’s Women’s team (BBC3).

Richard Life, head of acquisitions at Cineflix Rights said: “Curious Films has demonstrated the ability to win commissions from across the UK market for high-profile, attention-grabbing content which appeals to a wide range of audiences—particularly the 16-34 age group.”

Curious Films co-founder Dov Freedman added: “Partnering with Cineflix Rights provides us with the opportunity to move to our next phase of growth, building out from the UK into international markets.”

Cineflix Rights’ pact with Curious follows recent deals with Finestripe Productions, Windfall Films, Renegade Pictures, Lion TV, and Talesmith.
