I am somewhat confused by the question. Studios will never SELL rights ( in
the sense that you could buy the title WITH ppr rights) but all of them
do allow companies like Swank , Criterion and New Yorker to act as their
agent and sell rights for specific screenings or time periods. Virtually
all foreign films released by major studios are available through one of
those three companies. What titles were you looking for?
