Nava exits at Spain’s Filmax

International production topper to set up company

Antonia Nava, one of Spain’s most seasoned film execs, has quit as managing director of international production at mini-major Filmax Entertainment to set up her own shingle.

Teaming with an undisclosed partner, Nava’s company will have bases in Barcelona and Los Angeles, and will be ready to launch before September’s Toronto Film Festival.

The unnamed company will focus on international film production, making the most of Nava’s close relationships with the U.S., U.K. and Latin American markets.

Nava will continue producing movies for Barcelona-based Filmax as an outsourcing service, she added.

Her upcoming Filmax projects include Brad Anderson’s bossa nova romancer “Non Stop to Brazil,” shooting in Brazil and New York from October, and his thriller “Concrete Island,” based on a novel by J.G. Ballard; and Spanish-language crime story “The Blind Man of Seville,” an adaptation of Robert Wilson’s book, skedded to shoot by year end.

Filmax has yet to announce Nava’s replacement.

Nava joined Filmax in 1999, becoming a key architect of its sales success.

From 2005, she headed its international co-productions, producing Anderson’s “The Machinist” and “Transsiberian,” Jaume Balaguero’s “Fragile” and Gary Oldman starrer “The Backwoods.”

Before joining Filmax, Nava worked as BMG’s acquisition and marketing director for Latin America.
