AFM: Jeff Deutchman Joins Millennium from Paramount
In a pre-American Film Market move, Millennium Entertainment is expanding its acquisitions team by hiring veteran exec Jeff Deutchman as VP of acquisitions.
Deutchman has been director of acquisitions for Paramount Home Media, where he acquired Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood,” William H. Macy’s “Rudderless” and Joe Swanberg’s “Happy Christmas.”
Deutchman also worked in acquisitions for IFC Films and was involved in the deals for “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” “Sleepwalk with Me” and Werner Herzog’s “Cave of Forgotten Dreams.”
In August, the management team of Millennium Entertainment led by CEO Bill Lee and Virgo Investment Group partnered to acquire the Millennium Entertainment catalog assets and film distribution platform from a consortium of investors. Millennium Entertainment will undergo a name change in the coming months.
