Exec trio bolster Ventanazul

Production company fills senior management

Salma Hayek and Jose Tamez’s new Ventanazul shingle, created in conjunction with MGM to emphasize Latino stories and characters, has filled three senior management positions.

Producer Annie Stewart has been named VP of development, Lumumba Mosquera will head the company’s legal and business affairs, and Juan Davila will become director of development.

Stewart will be charged with bringing two to four film projects to market per year under the Ventanazul label, with MGM handling worldwide marketing and distribution. Over the past decade, Stewart and former partner Mike Figgis have produced such features as “Leaving Las Vegas,” “Cold Creek Manor” and “Timecode.”

Davila will identify and develop feature film projects with Hispanic elements. Davila, founder of management company Davila & Co., has represented emerging Hispanic writers, actors and filmmakers. Prior to forming Davila & Co., he served as an exec with A&E.

Mosquera’s duties will include negotiating development and production contracts and other legal agreements on behalf of Ventanazul. Mosquera joins Ventanazul from the Weinstein Co., where he served as senior VP of business affairs for Dimension Films. Prior to TWC, Mosquera was an entertainment department associate at the New York City office of entertainment and communications law firm Loeb & Loeb. Mosquera has also worked with independent film company the Shooting Gallery and hip-hop record company Def Jam Recordings.
