Kirsty Bell is both a successful film producer and a Chartered Tax Advisor who has spent much of her career at the top of global accountancy firms.
This combined expertise has seen her focus on the structuring of entertainment companies and their finance raises, together with advising active partnerships and sole traders in the creative industries since 1996 – a period in which she has raised over £200m for the industry and achieved in excess of 30 Producer / Executive Producer credits to her name.
After setting up and successfully running her own consultancy business, Kirsty launched Goldfinch Entertainment in 2013 and has to date raised over £70 million for a stable of 130+ projects across the Film, TV, Animation and Video Games sectors.
She recently launched Bird Box Finance, a debt financing company to complement Goldfinch, and in the last 18 months has provided over £25m of debt finance to Film projects.
As the final string to her bow, with actor / producer Craig Conway, she has setup BB88 and independent production company that received their seed investment from the China UK Film Fund. They will announce an impressive slate of projects to start with at Cannes, with a range of experienced international production partners.
