The American Film Market 2010 opened on November 3rd in Los Angeles and Anna Soler-Pontattended on behalf of Pontas in the aim to keep enlarging and strengthening the contacts in the film industry. She had a full schedule of meetings between Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, mainly with producers interested in acquiring the film rights of literary properties represented by Pontas or with possible partners for international co-productions.
However, the most important meeting took place during a friendly lunch with film director and producerMichael Mann, whose company Forward Pass and Columbia Pictures acquired the film rights of Susana Fortes ’s novel Waiting for Robert Capa from Pontas last year. The screenplay adapting the novel is being written by Jez Butterworth.

According to the actor, writer and film director Josh Radnor, anything at Beverly Hill’s E Baldi could be a good equivalent of a paella at Barceloneta’s Can Solé. And there is where he invited Anna for a nice dinner while we wait for his first film Happythankyoumoreplease to be successfully released next February 2011.
