Exclusive: Co-founder Rich Goldberg in is Berlin looking for global rights as part of a strategic expansion.

Top brass from La-based Vertical Entertainment are scouring Berlin for global rights as part of a strategic expansion to exploit independent gems across international platforms.

Co-founder Rich Goldberg and head of acquisitions and marketing Peter Jarowey are also on the look-out for Us and UK pick-ups, buoyed by their recent success in the Us with Susan Sarandon thriller The Calling.

The serial killer release went out last August on VOD, cable and satellite and generated $3m, an extraordinary and hitherto unreported success that the distributor is keen to replicate across its prestige roster of curated releases.

Vertical plans to release around two films a month and believes it can deliver robust launches through its relationships with Comcast and digital platforms that bode well for a title’s international prospects.
