Oscilloscope Pictures will be buying at the Cannes Film Festival this year despite the death today of company founder Adam Yauch. Dan Berger and David Laub, who just a day ago were promoted to jointly oversee marketing, distribution and acquisitions for the indie film company, will attend this month’s festival, Deadline has learned. Debra Fisher, who runs digital and TV sales for the company, also is headed to Cannes. Oscilloscope president David Fenkel, who co-founded the indie distributor with Yauch, will not attend because of a family matter. The plan Thursday to elevate Berger and Laub called for Fenkel to segue into a consulting role at the company. That will remain the case, though after Yauch’s passing he will be more heavily involved in the day-to-day running of the New York-based company than previously thought. Oscilloscope has been self-sufficient for more than three years.
