101 Films International Celebrates Six Christmas Film Pickups
By Ben Dalton20 – February 2023
UK-based sales firm 101 Films International has acquired worldwide sales rights to six Christmas films, all directed by US filmmaker Lane Shefter Bishop.
101 is launching sales on all six titles at this week’s European Film Market.
The titles include An Eclectic Christmas, about the instructions left behind in the will of a vintage store owner; Christmas Beneath The Stars, in which a blogger helps an ex-military man restore a Christmas exhibition; and Christmas On The Rocks, when a lady pretends to be her event planner sister in order to save an important client.
Also acquired are Mistletoe And Molly, about a waitress who falls for an image consultant who is just like her father; Secret Santa, about an ad executive searching for inspiration for her biggest client; and The Holiday Swap, a mix-up comedy in which a woman discovers her suitcase has been accidentally swapped with an identical one.
All the titles are based on books by Christmas romance author Melissa Hill, with the exception of Mistletoe And Molly and Secret Santa; and all are produced by Canadian company Breakthrough Entertainment.
