MarVista & Elefantec Ink Spanish-Language Movie Content Deal


MarVista Entertainment has formed a strategic content partnership with Elefantec Global to create a movie studio focused on crafting Spanish-language original, commercial and locally produced content.

The original films will be created and produced in Spanish by Elefantec, while MarVista will handle global distribution. Fifteen movies are currently in pre-production, with over 30 movies in development across the comedy, rom-com, drama, family and thriller genres.

Founder and CEO of MarVista Entertainment, Fernando Szew, said: “I’ve long admired Pepé’s creative and business acumen. Bringing together the dynamic studio structure we’ve created at MarVista with his career history and the team he is building at Elefantec will allow us to adapt our library of universal narratives to Spanish-speaking audiences worldwide, and create new ones.”

Elefantec Global’s José “Pepé” Bastón said: “MarVista’s best-in-class know-how and what Fernando has built in the U.S. is astonishing, especially in respect to the high quality and volume of production and distribution. Partnering together to create a Spanish-language movie powerhouse couldn’t be a more perfect fit.”
