WestEnd Films is a dynamic London-based international sales and feature film financing company, co-founded by Eve Schoukroun, Maya Amsellem and renowned producer and Capitol Films founder Sharon Harel-Cohen. WestEnd launched at Cannes 2008 and offers filmmakers finance, production and sales expertise as well as an extensive network of contacts across all sectors of the industry.

WestEnd Films received support to sell Nora Twomey's The Breadwinner, an animated feature about a young Afghan girl.

Maya Ansellem, Managing Director of WestEnd Films, said:

"Creative Europe's Sales Agents scheme has been invaluable, encouraging us to take more risks and put minimum guarantees on European films in which we truly believe and want to support as a financier and as an international sales agent."

Look at our 2017 Results report for a comprehensive overview of Creative Europe's support to UK sales agents in 2017.

WestEnd Films also received distribution funding through Creative Europe's Sales Agents scheme in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
