Beta Film GmbH, one of the world’s leading distribution companies, has taken a further stake in independent formats sales business Lineup Industries, on top of its 2016 investment, continuing and enhancing the complementary partnership between the two companies.
Lineup will continue to operate independently as the majority shareholder but the new investment will enable it to further boost/develop its position as the preeminent sales agent for bold, distinctive light entertainment and formats, and leverage Beta Film’s established infrastructure. Beta Film’s partnership with Lineup augments the German company’s non-fiction offering and network.

This additional investment underscores both parties’ commitment to the complementary partnership and we look forward to further developing our businesses and collective footprint globally.”
Moritz von Kruedener, Managing Director Beta Film adds “Ed and Julian have proven their excellent expertise in the format and light-entertainment market as well as their unfailing sense for hot-sellers.
