Gold Valley Films International launches sales company at AFM

Gold Valley Films, Inc., a full service facility producing world-class family 3D animated feature films, has announced that it will open its own international sales company, Gold Valley Films International (GVFI), under the helm of industry veteran Ariel Veneziano.  Veneziano will come on board as President of Gold Valley Films International, where he will oversee worldwide sales, acquisitions, distribution and marketing, from GVFI’s Los Angeles headquarters.

“This venture is an exciting opportunity to work with some of the best in the animation business,” said Veneziano.  “I feel honored to have been chosen to lead an exciting team at Gold Valley and to ensure its success.”

Gold Valley Films International’s first animated feature title is CINDERELLA 3D, an adaptation of the Brother Grimm’s fairy tale, in stereoscopic 3D.  Budgeted at $20 million, the film is written by Francis Glebas (THE LION KING, ALADDIN) and directed by Lynne Southerland (MULAN II). Victoria Ying (FROZEN, BIG HERO 6) oversees the visual development.  The film is currently in production with planned completion in May 2017.

In CINDERELLA 3D, the Prince has fallen into an evil spell by the Wicked Witch.  Cinderella and her loyal friends must embark on a perilous journey to restore the Prince to his true self and defeat the evil forces. 

Gold Valley Films previously produced the animated films SNOW WHITE: THE NEW ADVENTURE, THE LITTLE MERMAIN: ATTACH OF THE PIRATES, and TOY’S WAR, which Gold Valley Film International will also be handling for worldwide distribution.

Veneziano has worked on an eclectic array of hit films and television programs such as THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, APOCALYPTO, BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE and CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.  Prior to Gold Valley Film International, he served as President at International Film Trust, Icon Entertainment International, and GreeneStreet Films International.



GOLD VALLEY FILMS is a unique full service animation company with facilities to produce world-class family 3D animated feature films and animated series, as well as an international sales department.  Gold Valley Films is currently producing 2-3 animated feature films per year. Gold Valley is building its animation merchandise licensing department, and has recently launched an international distribution company, Gold Valley Films International.  Gold Valley aims to establish cooperation in the animation industry to create memorable characters and extra ordinary stories that appeal to audience of all ages.  For more information, visit
