Seven Arts Appoints Bobby Meyers as Senior Sales Adviser in Sales Team Restructuring

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - Seven Arts Pictures plc (NASDAQ: SAPX) announced the appointment of Bobby Meyers as senior adviser in a restructuring of Seven Arts International, the international sales arm of the Company.

Bobby joins Seven Arts as Senior Adviser to Seven Arts International in anticipation of the upcoming American Film Market ("AFM") in Santa Monica, CA.

Bobby has been involved in international sales of motion pictures for over thirty years, including as President of Lorimar Motion Pictures International, Filmways Pictures, and Orion Pictures International. Recently Bobby acted as acquisitions consultant at Roadshow Distributors in Australia, and presently, consults for CMG as well as for various other territorial distributors. Bobby's numerous relationships and strong reputation in the industry make him a perfect match for Seven Arts.

Bobby joins an excellent sales and marketing team, led by Kate Hoffman, COO of Seven Arts Pictures plc. The duo will oversee Caroline Couret-Delègue, Director of Development and Marketing, and Eric Min, Vice President of Sales and Distribution, to manage the sales of the company's motion picture titles.

Focus for this year's AFM will be on the announcement of Fyodor Bondarchuk as director of "The Winter Queen." Bondarchuk is the director of the highest grossing picture produced in post-communist Russia ("The 9th Company") and the son of the Academy Award winning director of Tolstoy's "War and Peace," Sergei Bondarchuk.

Peter Hoffman, CEO of Seven Arts, commented, "We are very much looking forward to this year's AFM, and feel that Bobby and the Seven Arts sales team are in a great position to have a very productive market."
