Nantosuelta Entertainment Production Company launches in Dublin
19 May 2017 : Katie McNeice
'Sanctuary' (Len Collin)
The new company is spearheaded by seasoned film broker and studio executive Shari O’Donnell and Edwina Forkin of Zanzibar Films who has made over 40 award winning films in Ireland since 1998.

They have already begun accepting submissions on their company website, linked below.

The company offers Ireland’s 32% tax incentive upfront, which does not require recoupment or back end points, and meets section 481 criteria such as a minimum spend in Ireland of €125,000. To attract international filmmakers and studios, Nantosuelta Entertainment also offers private equity financing.

Zanzibar’s latest film, 'Sanctuary’ (Len Collin) achieved the title of Best Feature Film at the 2016 Galway Film Fleadh and ADIFF as well as Newport Beach Film Festival’s award for Best Director. ‘Sanctuary’ also secured sales agent Content Media at the Cannes Film Festival.

Upcoming Projects
Nantosuelta Entertainment will begin their first productions this summer including Thora Birch’s ‘3Lives’, Thierry Potok’s ‘Lara’s Home’ and a €16,000,000 Scandinavian Co-Production ‘The Revenge’ (Nils Gaup) which is based on the true story of ‘King Magnus’ of Norway.

They have also won the bid on rights to ‘Goodbye Komárom’, the true story of the Jews escaping through the Danube River in 1950, as well as ‘In the Valley of the Black Pig’ from Sean Toolan, based on the Willia, B. Yeats poem.

Shari O’Donnell:
“Right now we are also using our Private Equity to fund any type of film so we can build our capital but the overall goal of our Private equity is to Produce Irish storylines...We want to be known as the Walt Disney of Irish storytelling so next year we hope to take a sharp turn in achieving our mission and producing stories such as Brian Boru, Cú Chulainn, Grace O’Malley and ‘The Famine’.”
