CCI names VP of distribution


Toronto-based independent prodco CCI Entertainment has appointed Rekha Shah to the position of VP, distribution and co-production. Shah moves into the position after spending three years as CCI’s director of sales.

Shah, who before CCI had stints as co-president of August Productions and director of sales at Alliance Films, will be responsible for managing CCI Releasing’s international library and executive sales team.

She will also work closely with co-chairmen, Charles Falzon and Arnie Zipursky to package original content.

CCI is responsible for television series including Candice Tells All, Joe and Jack, The Longhouse Tales, and Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs, a preschool series that now has a slate of interactive eBooks and apps based on it after a recent deal by CCI.
