Film executive Mimi Bartels is set to be unveiled as Co-founder and Creative Head at Anakle Films, the production company behind Netflix’s global hit, The Black Book.

This announcement comes several months after Nollywood veteran Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) joined the board of directors as Chairman.

Bartels joins Anakle Films with a wealth of experience, having served in various capacities at FilmOne Entertainment for over seven years.

She most recently held the position of General Manager at the FilmOne Studios, where she oversaw the production of the first FilmOne Original Adire, and led the company’s collaboration with Funke Akindele on the blockbuster hit, Battle on the Buka Street.

At Anakle Films, Bartels’ role will include identifying potential local and international hits by blending intuition with data, developing stories, and refining them for pitches with investors. She will also pursue strategic collaborations with creatives and other production companies to produce films and stories that resonate with Nigerian audiences and beyond.

Ashley Opusunju, formerly the Deputy Chief of Operations at Anakle, the parent agency that owns Anakle Films, has also made the internal transition into the role of General Manager at Anakle Films.
