Pasatiempo has been a selective content provider to the Americas for the past 20 years. From our first acquisition, LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE, to our most recent acquisition, the beloved BROOKLYN, Pasatiempo consistently looks to bring quality films that can play to audiences across all media in the region.
Pasatiempo’s specific areas of focus include:
· Central America: Panama, Costa Rica, Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Pasatiempo was the first independent distributor to actively service all territories of Central America and remains fully committed to that initiative 20 years later.
· Puerto Rico & the Caribbean: in partnership with Premiere Films, Pasatiempo is the exclusive theatrical distributor in Puerto Rico & the US Virgin Islands for Open Road, A24, Broad Green and the former FilmDistrict. Using its Puerto Rico presence, Pasatiempo has extended its influence into the Caribbean basin, actively exploiting the many islands that form the Dutch Antilles, the West Indies and the British Virgin Islands.
· Pan-Lat: Pasatiempo is opportunistic acquiring certain films for the entire region and on occasion leverages its buying power to include other territories such as Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Australia, Korea and South Africa.
Pasatiempo’s extensive reach across multiple territories together with its distribution structure make it a unique content provider within the international marketplace.
2018 highlights include the ultimate #MeToo women’s revenge (aka empowerment) film, REVENGE starring Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz; TODOS LO SABEN from Iranain director Asghar Farhadi starring Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Ricardo Darin; and DEATH WISH starring Bruce Willis.
