Nava to link Spain and Americas

New company to focus on international productions

SITGES, Spain — In a significant addition to Spain’s movie production sector, Antonia Nava and Sagrario Santorum have created Nava Entertainment, a Barcelona-based international production, directors’ management and packaging company.

Nava headed international co-productions at Barcelona’s Filmax, producing Brad Anderson’s “The Machinist” and “Transsiberian,” Jaume Balaguero’s “Fragile” and Gary Oldman starrer “The Backwoods.”

Nava Entertainment will work a two-way street between Spain and the Americas. Movies will all be international co-productions, with Nava targeting Latin America, the U.S. and Canada as prime co-production countries.

“We’ll have quite a lot of films in development, but I’d like to have at least one film in production and another near completion every year,” Nava said at the Sitges Festival.

Some will be genre pics and some will be local territory films.

In a departure for Spain, Nava Entertainment will create a label for films targeting femmes.

A former exec at In Vitro Films, Santorum has financial expertise that includes familiarity with the tax break systems in Spain, Colombia, Mexico and Brazil.

Nava and Santorum will also manage directors both inside and outside Spain.

Nava will continue to produce movies for Filmax as an outsourcing service, including Anderson’s bossa nova romancer “Non Stop to Brazil,” a co-production with Robbins Entertainment, which is skedded to shoot in the spring.
