Together with Reiko Bradley the Becker Group established the joint venture Becker Films International (BFI) in October 2003 to acquire, distribute and package films aimed at the worldwide marketplace. Projects are sourced from producers worldwide as well as from Australia.

The synergy with Becker Films has proven to be an advantageous source of product, resulting for example in BFI’s acquisition of director Robert Connolly’s Three Dollars starring internationally recognised Australian actors David Wenham, Frances O’Connor and Sarah Wynter. Similarly, Dendy has acquired domestic rights to BFI’s musical romantic comedy Marigold starring Ali Larter and Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.

In less than one year of operation, BFI has built up a diversified slate of films in various stages of production, which in addition to Marigold and Three Dollars include Where Love Reigns, with Martin Scorsese as Executive Producer and starring Douglas Henshall, Simon Callow and Armin Mueller-Stahl; Puppy, the feature film debut from Australian director Kieran Galvin; Osama, the multiple award winning and 2004 Foreign Language Golden Globe film from Afghan director Siddiq Barmak; Five Worlds, the next film from the producers of Osama and the vampire thriller Second Skin from Australian film and TV director Scott Patterson. Negotiations are underway for several more films set to start production over the next six months.

Prior to launching BFl, Reiko was based in the United States and was Executive Vice President of Worldwide Distribution for sales veteran Mark Damon’s company MDP Worldwide for 6 years handling over 150 films, including the Academy Award winning film Monster starring Charlize Theron, The Upside Of Anger starring Kevin Costner and Joan Allen, The United States Of Leland starring Kevin Spacey, Ryan Gosling and Don Cheadle and, and The I Inside, the thriller starring Ryan Phillipe, Sarah Polley and Stephen Rea.
