Arenas has craving for 'Nicotina'

20 August 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Santiago Pozo, the CEO and founder of Latino-oriented company Arenas Entertainment, is convinced that the Latino audience in the United States is underserved by Hollywood studios. And he plans to test that proposition this weekend by releasing the Spanish-language film Nicotina on 106 screens. That's a relatively wide release for a film that would otherwise be distributed within the selective art house community. And the results could determine whether Latinos have an appetite for Spanish-language fare as well as how effective Spanish-language media is in reaching that potential audience. For Arenas, the Los Angeles-based company that began life as a film marketing and talent management firm, Nicotina marks the first nationwide release of its fledgling distribution arm. And it is targeting its entire broadcast media buy in Spanish-language media, spending $2 million -- a figure that exceeds most studios' Spanish-language budgets for even the largest blockbuster. »
