In 2017, Ana Renovica negotiated a contract with Synergetic Distribution in Los Angeles to represent acquisitions in fourteen regions of Europe.

Synergetic Distribution is a worldwide distribution company which releases feature films, documentaries and television series.

In early 2017, Synergetic acquired rights to the Swedish film SAMI BLOOD (“Sameblod”), a Sundance hit by Swedish filmmaker Amanda Kernell. CONSTITUTION (“Ustav Republike Hrvatske”), by the acclaimed Croatian director Rajko Grlic , that won the Grand Prix Des Amériques at the Montreal World Festival and the top prize at the Santa Barbara Film Festival and Hadas ben Aroya’s PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT ME (“Anashim Shehem Lo Ani”). The film SAMI BLOOD, CONSTITUTION and PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT ME served as an inspiration for Renovica as a platform for her vision, to deliver films from South Eastern Europe with a focus on culturally relative themes that foreground the tone, texture and sensibility of the region. Renovica approached Anatol Chavez, head of acquisitions, and Sasha Knezev, to deliver films of similar caliber as previously mentioned films from South Eastern Europe and exhibit them to the world. Renovica also wants to display the talents of regional filmmakers and develop scripts with distribution deals signed prior to the production of selective films. As such, one branch of 888 Films will focus additionally on screenplays and development for future films. The deal was signed in July of 2017. Renovica is now aggressively pursuing films to showcase the talent of films and filmmakers in the area. Synergetic Distribution is headquartered in Beverly Hills, CA with Anatol Chavez and 888 Films is headquartered in Novi Sad, Serbia with Ana Renovica.
