Splendid Film BV, headquartered in Amsterdam, will start its operations on 1 June. The managing director will be the experienced Splendid salesperson in Benelux, Andrew Ernster. With his eight-member team, Ernster will in future release up to 15 films in cinemas a year with Splendid Film BV, including local films. The selection will cover a broad range from action, thriller, drama and family entertainment right up to art house.

Cinema exploitation for Belgium will be carried out in collaboration with the local partner KFD.
