Picture Tree Blooms At EFM 2017
With An Impressive Diverse Line-Up

Tiger Girl - Screening Panorama Special Fri Feb 10th – 19:00 Zooplast 1
Based in Berlin, Picture Tree International (PTI) the sales and distribution company headed by Andreas Rothbauer now in its fourth year has a diverse lineup of films at the European Film Market (EFM).

One of the major highlights in its lineup is the acquisition of the international rights to Jakob Lass' feature Tiger Girl, which has its world premiere in the Panorama Special and is set for an April release through Constantin Film Verleih.

Welcome to Germany stars Shooting Star Elyas M'Barek, Florian David Fitz and Austrian legend Senta Berger. The film centres around the highly charged topic of immigration and is directed by Simon Verhoeven whose credits include the German franchise Men in the City (Männerherzen), and the English-language stalker thriller Unfriend Friend Request distributed by Warner Bros in the UK in 2016.

Currently in production and continuing its cooperation with Pantaleon Films, PTI launches the 12 Mio Euro budgeted action comedy Hot Dog, which stars Til Schweiger and Matthias Schweighöfer.
