Anna Soler-Pont

Anna Soler-Pont has run the Pontas Literary Agency in Barcelona since 1992. She was one of the early adopters of an attempt that is still being made to establish a market for books which become films. She has brokered deals with her writers to make movie deals many times but, through Pontas Films (a much newer company), this is the first time she has decided to produce a film based on a script she wrote herself (adapting a novel she co-wrote with Asha Miró), directed by Maria Ripoll, starring Nandita Das and Aina Clotet. Imagina International Sales is in charge of international sales.

Before meeting her in Berlin, she wrote us:

Here´s the official note: we have finished the shooting of Traces of Sandalwood between Mumbai and Barcelona!!! Our first fiction feature film produced by Pontas Films!! At last! By the way, the title is now a working title… we´ve decided to change it!

It´s been very hard, difficult, challenging… but also very interesting and I´ve learned so much! Today we have started the complex journey through post-production. And our wish is to be able to have the final cut totally edited by mid-April. Our dream would be to premiere September this year, in Toronto and or/be at the official selection in San Sebastian. We´ll see!

Hug from Barcelona,

Anna

When we met in Berlin she showed us the new promotion and discussed her strategy for entering the world market.  It has been an honor that she has kept up with us over the last four years that it has been since she has been working on this film.  We are looking forward now to following its arc from debut to accomplishing international sales.
