Explora Films has just been recognized internationally as one of the world’s leading production companies and distributors by RealScreen, a Canadian documentary trade magazine distributed worldwide. Considered as one of the most prestigious publications and highly valued by professionals in the documentary sector, the magazine draws up an annual list of the companies with the greatest presence on the international market every year. The list is made public during MIPDOC, the world’s most important market specialized in documentaries, where buyers from around the world attend every year.
The companies that make up this prestigious list are chosen not only by the editorial staff, but also by buyers and programmers from television channels and networks all over the world. Known as the “Global 100,” the list is a snapshot of the companies that have demonstrated that they are not only the most influential companies working in the documentary genre, but also the year’s most respected and highly considered.
The list is composed mostly of production companies from the USA, Canada, the UK, and Australia, with a scant presence of European and Asian companies. Explora is the only Spanish production company among the world’s 100 most influential companies. In the words of Explora’s Director of Distribution, Carlos Sevillano, “It is a great honor and a source of pride to form part of the Global 100, and at the same time it recognizes the significant efforts the company has made to establish an international presence since it was founded in 2004.”
Explora Films is currently attending MIPTV, where the company is presenting its new documentary productions to television channels and networks from around the world, and where it expects to close new sales agreements that will consolidate its position as one of the world’s most highly respected companies in the documentary genre.
