The entertainment-lending team Pozil oversees has loaned over $4 billion since 2011 to finance the production and distribution of film and TV projects in the U.S. and China. In recent months, East West has put together financing for Bona Film’s investment in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” Alibaba Pictures’ credit facility for covering its studio investments in projects such as the sixth “Mission: Impossible” and Perfect World’s senior debt facility to finance its investment in Universal’s film slate.
