EXCLUSIVE: PMK*BNC has formed a film marketing and distribution department. It will be headed by Marian Koltai-Levine, the former marketing head of Fine Line Features and Picturehouse. Koltai-Levine, who started Zipline Entertainment after Bob Berney’s Picturehouse was shuttered, is bringing her entire staff over to PMK*BNC. The move is to be announced this morning. Koltai-Levine adds another dimension to PMK*BNC, which formed in January when InterPublic merged PR powerhouses PMK/HBH and Bragman Nyman Cafarelli, with BNC’s Michael Nyman and Chris Robichaud running the venture with PMK/HBH’s  Cindi Berger. That merge was a tumultuous undertaking that reshaped the showbiz PR landscape: among other defections, Simon Halls, Robin Baum and Stephen Huvane, left with Andy Gelt to form Slate with Ina Treciokas, and Jennifer Allen and Melissa Kates exited and brought their clients to launch Viewpoint.
