About us

Favor Talents is a management for a hand-picked group of European based storytellers with a focus on acting or directing. We confront underrepresentation, misappropriation and abuse of power in our film, television and theater industry.

We offer the people we represent total business support as well as professional support. Our team coaches those with exceptional talent to a higher level and a professional career. We believe building close and long term personal relationships is necessary to nurture and guide careers with care. Together we search for new creative ways of finding work within the international industry, by using our network, marketing & promotion and collaborating with casting directors, producers and agents all over the globe.

We are a member of the N.A.A. (The Dutch Agency Association), the DAFF (Dutch Academy for Film) and the EFA (European Film Academy).
