Bella Destino Films: we are an independent production company located in Rockford, Illinois and are solely dedicated to the creation of quality, inspiring entertainment.

We believe that lives are stories and that heroes can be found in the most unlikely places. We believe that one person can truly make a difference and change the course of history. And we also believe that the best stories are meaningful, impactful, and leave you a different person after you have experienced them. Our vision encompasses meaningful issues within our stories that inspire our audiences to take action.

Our current venture is in launching a slate of five films about the exceptional, true stories of five compelling women. There is a need for substantial, female protagonists in the filmmaking world and it has been uncovered, contrary to popular belief, that films featuring female protagonists earn similar box office grosses to those featuring male protagonists. It is our goal to positively impact the film industry with the stories of these remarkable women.


Behind Bella Destino

The Bella Destino coin design originates from a story in ancient Greek mythology about a nymph named Arethusa and her transformation into a fountain. The tale of Arethusa’s metamorphosis began when she came upon a stream in the forest. Unbeknownst to her the stream was actually the sea god Alpheus, who fell in love with her as she began to bathe in the river’s waters. When the young nymph became aware of Alpheus’ presence, and his intentions, Arethusa fled from the stream, as she wished to remain a chaste attendant of the goddess Artemis.

Arethusa prayed for protection from the god’s stalking courtship and Artemis hid her in the form of a spring, which flowed underground and emerged in Ortygia. Persistent, though, Alpheus travelled through the seas in his river form and at long last succeeded in mixing his waters with those of Arethusa in what is now known as “The Arethusa Fountain of Syracuse” in Sicily. As legend would have it, coins used in Ortygia at that time, which depicted a young woman with a net in her hair and dolphins swimming around her head, were believed to be the incarnation of Arethusa herself.


The experience and commitment of Bella Destino Films combined with the unique working relationships with the management teams’ production knowledge, has targeted its focus on developing only films with strong potential, making this venture a solid opportunity for investors to become part of a winning team. The practical experience of the management team provides for tighter controls over the cost of production and also results in a well-planned strategy that is ultimately designed to be more lucrative and profitable.
