By Robert Briel

Quentin Carbonell has been appointed Director of Content and Editorial for FilmStruck International.

FilmStruck International is the premium movie streaming service which launched this year in the UK, France and Spain as the first three markets of a joint venture between Turner’s Digital Ventures & Innovation group and Warner Bros. Digital Networks, with plans to expand to additional markets in due course.

Carbonell, who takes up his new role with immediate effect, is responsible for defining and executing the overall editorial strategy for the service and leads content acquisition, programming and curation across all regions. He will work closely with the local programming teams, and with the marketing, creative, product and analytics teams to help optimise user acquisition efforts as well as content consumption and discoverability.

His role also includes working closely with existing and potential content partners, overseeing the programming strategy, liaising on content localisation requirements and ensuring an efficient metadata production flow.

Carbonell joins Turner from Mubi where he was responsible for acquisitions and led strategic editorial partnerships, notably with Cannes’ Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight. A native of France with a masters in Cinema from the University of Lille, he is fluent in English and also speaks Spanish. He reports in to Kerensa Samanidis, General Manager, International for FilmStruck who joined the service earlier this year.

“Quentin brings to Turner a great track record in digital programming, a deep knowledge of movie content across the full breadth of genres from classic to indie to world cinema and fantastic experience in direct to consumer services, including an understanding of the importance of the user experience, all of which we can’t wait to tap into,” said Samanidis.
