Marilyn Kynastonis a Partner in the media content sales agency and distribution company Picture Box Distribution, founded in 2001. Along with business partner Kate Sanagan, Marilyn sells both kids and factual programming to a wide range of buyers from conventional cable, satellite and free television channels including Discovery, National Geographic, Sky, and A & E to online platforms including Hulu, Ameba, Amazon and Adrise.
Picture Box has weathered many changes to the industry over the last decade and a half and continues to shift its business model as the industry finds new ways to get content from producers to viewers.
In 2012 Kate and Marilyn were chosen by Playback Magazine as one of six ‘New Establishment’ Canadian companies.
Recently Picture Box has brought together international financing partners on children’s properties to complete financing. Most notably ANNEDROIDS (TVO & Knowledge), the first Canadian kids series to premiere on Amazon (U.S. and U.K.), for which we brought on Ki.Ka (Germany), SVT (Sweden) and SRC (French Canada).
