CMG is a full service international sales company, headed by veteran sales and distribution executive, Edward Noeltner. CMG was launched in 2003 with the exclusive international sales on HOOKWINKED – THE TRUE STORY OF LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, the hit animated feature which went on to gross over US $110 million in its world-wide theatrical release. Since 2003, CMG has added over 100 titles to its line-up which includes quality feature films of all genres, 3-D animated features and series as well as award winning feature length documentaries and series.

Over the past 25 years, Edward Noeltner has had the privilege of licensing some 16 Oscar nominated features (many of them Oscar winners) and has worked with some of the most creative individuals in the industry. Films like Scott Hick’s SHINE, Julie Taymor’s FRIDA, Stephen Daldry’s THE HOURS, Quentin Tarantino’s KILL BILL: VOL. 1 & 2, and Rob Marshall’s CHICAGO are just some of the many memorable feature films Noeltner has been associated with in terms of international sales.

Since its inception, CMG has been known for offering original, commercial properties including STILL MINE, REACHING FOR THE MOON, Academy Award nominated GASLAND, CHRIS ROCK’S GOOD HAIR, and THE COLLECTOR & THE COLLECTION.  In addition, CMG offers an array of exciting new 3-D Digital CGI animated features, all independently produced with amazing voice talents such as Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson, Abigail Breslin, Steve Buscemi, Laurence Fishburne and Liam Neeson, along with some of the finest animators working in the business.  CMG’s collaboration with Triggerfish Animation – ADVENTURES IN ZAMBEZIA 3D – garnered over US $34 million in its theatrical run. Our recent acquisitions include LOVING VINCENT, SEAL TEAM 3D, THE LITTLE VAMPIRE 3D, PING PONG RABBIT 3D, and MISSION KATHMANDU.
