AVANTI PICTURES is a young company with an established reputation in the audiovisual market and a vast and varied range of projects among its achievements, from short films, video clips and documentaries, to commercials and four feature films: Almacenados[Warehoused], El vigilante[The nightwatch], Adiós, mundo cruel [Goodbye, Cruel World] and En el último trago [One for the road].
We are firmly committed to developing quality films without neglecting commercial box-office success, and therefore, draw upon a group of professionals from a variety of cinematic backgrounds that make up our strong, high-performance working team founded on trust, talent and a passion for cinema.
We work with projects from their very conception, taking an idea and developing it together with the scriptwriter in order to make the script the central pillar of each production. We are always on the lookout for new, fresh ideas that catch the imagination of our audiences while offering innovative storylines and breaking with the monotony and repetition of tired old plotlines. We endeavor to make sure we do not close the door to any genre, on the premise —however— that we are firm believers in everything we produce.
Following his second feature film, Jack Zagha has already made his name as a proven, passionate and talented director who places particular focus on directing his cast. Executive producer Yossy Zagha has built up a committed group of professionals with vast experience in the pre- production, production, post-production and distribution of feature films.
AVANTI PICTURES is a production company on the rise with several ongoing projects, headlined by the release of its dramedy Almacenados [Warehoused] and our first foray into the horror genre with the film The Containment, which sets out to give the genre a new lease on life and to launch a striking product of genuine originality into the international market.
We believe in the future of Mexican cinema, and are focused on creating productions that respond to what the viewing public wants both in Mexico and outside its borders: our capacity to surprise them with each new production.
