Angel Studios, the platform empowering filmmakers with full creative control to crowdfund and create, is announcing today a ten year, five film deal with Director Alejandro Monteverde.  Best known for films such as SOUND OF FREEDOM, BELLA, and CABRINI, Monteverde’s films are made for a big-screen experience and are beloved by fans and critics alike.  

“When I first met Alejandro and experienced his passion for filmmaking, I felt like we had just encountered the next Frank Capra. His approach to sharing stories is always unique, accessible, and powerful,” shares Jordan Harmon, President of Angel Studios. “We couldn’t be more excited to help bring his unique storytelling and stunning vision for filmmaking to the world.”

“I am looking forward to collaborating with Angel and the Harmon brothers to make powerful films,” shares Monteverde. 

Monteverde first began working with the studio, with the release of the summer blockbuster SOUND OF FREEDOM, which became the #10 film in the box office for 2023. This was followed by his cinematic masterpiece, a biopic on the life of Francesca Cabrini which launched on International Women’s Day 2024. CABRINI achieved an impressive A CinemaScore, and was Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, with a 90% Critics Rating and a 98% Audience Score.

To launch the partnership, casting is nearing completion for a yet untitled project, set to begin principal photography this Summer on the Island of Malta.
