LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- eWorld Companies, Inc. announced today that it has formed a joint venture with CostaFilma SL of Andalusia, Spain and that CostaFilma has agreed become a primary provider of video content and movies to be broadcast over eWorld's Boomerang Media Station and PlayTV online broadcast network. CostaFilma will be eWorld's exclusive provider of Spanish-speaking movies and video content and an important provider of English-speaking films and video content as well. eWorld and CostaFilma have also formed a strategic alliance in which the two companies have agreed to a series of cross-promotions via print and Internet media in which eWorlde will create advertising and promote CostaFilma through its Boomerang Media Station, and CostaFilma will actively promote eWorld's Boomerang Media Station and PlayTV network through its online and print publications and company functions.
Based in Andalusia, Spain, CostaFilma is a full-service organization aimed at the independent film and video market. CostaFilma takes a global outlook and has established film industry contacts throughout all of Europe, most notably in the U.K., Spain and Eastern Europe. This announcement carries special significance since Spain is one of eWorld's key international markets, more than 98% of Spain has the ability to receive high speed (broadband) Internet content, and CostaFilma is ideally positioned to adapt a wide variety of film and video content for online broadcast via Boomerang Media Station and PlayTV.
CostaFilma's service areas span all key areas of independent film creation including Development, Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production and Distribution. CostaFilma also offers state-of-the-art technical services including standards conversion and language dubbing and has amassed a huge library of Spanish film and video, which has enabled it to become a major supplier of films to Spanish television stations and a major distributor of film and videos via DVD and Video-on-Demand. CostaFilma's most recent film distributions include such highly-acclaimed titles as "Morgan's Cake," "Bal-Can-Can," "In the Realms of the Unreal," and "Towards Sunset," and they have recently announced their optioning of "Coming Out," a comedy written by American screenwriter Jason Strange which they were able to secure as a result of their long-time involvement with Kevin Spacey's Trigger Street Productions.
In response to this announcement, Henning Morales, CEO and President of eWorld Companies, Inc. commented, "We are very pleased to announce the selection of CostaFilma as our newest strategic partner and the exclusive provider of film and video content for Boomerang Media Station and PlayTV in Spain. We also anticipate that CostaFilma will provide content for and be a major contributor to our expansion into additional Western and Eastern European markets."
CostaFilma's Administrator Phil Smy added, "eWorld's Boomerang Media Station is one of the most exciting new technologies we have seen and, in conjunction with PlayTV, provides a premium Internet tool and content delivery platform that can revolutionize the online entertainment industry. CostaFilma is proud to be a primary provider of film and video content for this ground- breaking venture in Spain, and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with eWorld."
