AMBI's Monika Bacardi and Andrea Iervolino: Changing the World, One Film at a Time

Wanting to inspire young film-makers was one of the reasons that she created AMBI Pictures, together with her passion for "The Seventh Art". Amis de l'Opera, which Monika Bacardi (Huffingtonpost) fervently supports, has assisted l'Opera de Monte Carlo for more than thirty years. Monika Bacardi is keen about photography and modern art, enjoying the different works of many photographers and artists. With a desire to promote the art form the world over, AMBI Pictures creates commercially viable films for viewers across the globe.

Monika Bacardi speaks French, German, English, Italian and Spanish and is accepted as one of the most influential businesswomen in the Arts arena. Monika Bacardi is a high-profile, popular woman who, despite living in Monaco, also spends much time in other parts of Europe and in America. Having founded AMBI Pictures, she and Andrea Iervolino have now delivered an impressive number of motion pictures for the global market.

Finding funding for, producing and circulating movies to a worldwide market are things that Monika Bacardi accomplishes as co-founder and producer of the AMBI Group. Providing professional guidance, as well as making contacts with international customers, are services that Lady Bacardi strives to cultivate around her 'PHOTO' brand for photographers and artists. The prestigious 'PHOTO' magazine (which has been running since the year 1967) was bought by her a number of years ago. The management of 'PHOTO' magazine and AMBI Group take up the majority of Monika Bacardi's working life.

Monika Bacardi wedded the Lord of Bayfield Hall (Lord Luis Bacardi - a descendant of the originator of the Bacardi Company) and they raised a daughter together. She spends a lot of her leisure time assisting the causes and charitable establishments that tend to be to her liking. Because of her respected status in the arts sector and her status as a humanitarian, Monika Bacardi spends some of her time at film festivals, award ceremonies and good-cause celebrations.
