Bandiera Bros.: balancing act between Cintelba & Michigan.

Do not get confused: Gabriel Bandiera heads Cintelba S.A., a program buying enterprise for Latin America based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Marcelo Bandiera heads Michigan Films International, a program sales company also based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. However, it is not uncommon to see the two brothers, often in the company of associate Daniel Colombo, switch roles at different markets. But, the ever alert TV executives are always ready to point out their distinction and/or their proper identity to the press at every occasion. It can also happen that the two Bandiera brothers sometimes want to talk only about SPACE, the new satellite movie service that they are operating in partnership.

Commented Gabriel Bandiera, "The introduction of new satellite and cable TV systems in Latin America has accelerated and stimulated business relationships not only among Latin American countries, but also with the Europeans."

A fixed presence at the L.A. Screenings and NATPE, in addition to other international TV markets, Michigan Films is now representing U.S Companies such as Zodiac, Overseas Group and World Events for Latin American countries. Michigan Films also represents IDDH from France, Sullivan Films from Canada and Beyond international from Australia.

At NATPE '93, in addition to highlighting a new cartoon, Michigan Films will also introduce a new feature film from Amblin Television and Overseas Group, along with a new program from Beyond International and the series Road to Avonlea from Sullivan Films.
