Charlotte Mickie to Leave eOne Films

American Film Market - Day 5

Mickie worked on “Incendies,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “Animal Kingdom”

Charlotte Mickie will leave Entertainment One Films International in mid-January, the company said Tuesday. The executive vice president has been with eOne since 2008, when eOne bought Maximum Films, where Mickie was managing director.

At eOne, Mickie handled the acquisition, marketing and sales of “Incendies,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “Animal Kingdom.”

She has also worked at Celluloid Dreams, where she worked with Michael Haneke and Francois Ozon, and Alliance Atlantis, where she handled foreign sales for “Bowling for Columbine.”

“The contribution Charlotte has made to the independent film community is unparalleled. She has helped countless young filmmakers find their voice and realize success around the world,” Nelson Kuo-Lee, exec VP & COO of eOne’s Global Film Group, said in a statement. “We sincerely thank Charlotte and wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavors.”

Harold van Lier will take over as president of eOne Films International in January, expanding the division’s footprint. eOne will establish Sveille International, a division designed to exploit independent films from around the world.
