BelAmi Signs European Distro Deal With Vimpex Media

LOS ANGELES—BelAmi on Thursday announced that effective immediately Europe’s leading gay DVD distribution house, Vimpex Media, will be the exclusive distributor of BelAmi’s entire DVD catalog throughout Europe. For many years BelAmi's main DVD line Premier Collection has been distributed via Bruno Gmuender.

Vimpex Media and BelAmi have enjoyed a successful working relationship since 2010 when Vimpex became the exclusive European distributor of BelAmi's additional DVD lines: Lukas Ridgeston, Kinky Angels, George Duroy, and most recently Freshmen.

With Vimpex now handling BelAmi's Premier Collection all of BelAm's DVD lines are now available under one roof. This will provide a more coordinated delivery as well as guaranteed product availability at the best prices, always, the studio said.

Thomas Hummel, CEO of Vimpex Media, remarked, "BelAmi has been the undisputed leading gay label in the world for 24 years in part because of their uniquely high production standards. BelAmi films consistently and noticeably stand out from the mass of gay porn in the market place. Everyone knows BelAmi is a guaranteed top seller for retailers."

The first release from BelAmi's Premier Collection via Vimpex Media is Christian's Accidental Lovers, which hits the streets later this week.

BelAmi's publicist says of the new partnership, "As we begin this new journey with the great and very capable group at Vimpex Media we want to acknowledge the two decades of work with our previous distributor Bruno Gmuender. They were a key distribution partner who contributed to our success in the continental EU as well as worldwide via countless photo books, calendars, and magazine covers."

He added, "We feel the future of our DVD lines in Europe are in the best possible hands with Vimpex Media who have been around since 1988 and have proven themselves time and time again. We are excited that they are now releasing our PREMIER COLLECTION as our upcoming slate of DVDs feature some of the best content we've ever produced."
