Newen & Anton Enter Financing Pact


The European financer and producer Anton has entered into a strategic agreement with Newen to co-invest in distribution rights for both in-house productions and third-party programs.

Anton will be a co-investor in Newen’s distribution rights across all genres—fiction, documentary and animation—up to 35 million euros ($39 million).

Romain Bessi, Newen’s managing director, said: “I am very pleased with this agreement with Anton, which shares our ambition. Its support will help speed up our growth and expand our European projects by boosting their export potential.”

Sébastien Raybaud, CEO and founder of Anton, said: “Newen has a proven track record in creating original, world-class content for the global market. We are excited to be partnering with the group at this key moment in its expansion.”
