Marieke De Meerleer
Marieke De Meerleer graduated from Ghent University with a master’s degree in Languages & Literature, with English being her major. During her University training she worked for Kinepolis Ghent and experienced the ins and outs of a movie theatre first hand. Pursuing her cinephile interests she applied for an internship at Remain In Light distribution, where she cooperated on Benelux releases such as “20,000 Days On Earth”, “While We’re Young” and “Clouds of Sils Maria”. This not only proved to be an excellent learning opportunity to acquire experience in the various fields of film distribution, but it also has yielded her a fulltime job as sales and marketing assistant. In November 2015, Marieke joined The Searchers as their operations manager, only months after the company’s launch and oversees day-to-day production and home entertainment sales, and contributes to global release strategies, both theatrical and home entertainment.
