French film financing, sales and distribution firm Wild Bunch has launched an L.A.-based sales arm, Insiders.

Paris-based Wild Bunch is headed by Vincent Maraval. The company recently unveiled a strong sales slate for Cannes.

Maraval will also lead Insiders, which will concentrate on independent movies with budgets of more than $15 million.

Insiders is bringing several titles to Cannes. They include Jeff Nichols-directed Loving, starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga, and Flag Day, directed by Sean Penn and starring Penn and daughter Dylan Penn.

A couple of other projects are expected to be added during the Cannes market.
