Anna Soler-Pont (Barcelona, 1968) is the founder of Pontas Literary & Film Agency, a Barcelona-based agency dedicated to the international management of copyright for writers. It has launched and helped to consolidate the international careers of authors such as Dolores Redondo, Milena Busquets, Jonas Jonasson and Eka Kurniawan.

In 2013, the partners of the Pontas literary agency set up the production company Pontas Films, which specialises in literary adaptations. Its first feature-length film was Traces of Sandalwood, directed by Maria Ripoll, winner of the 2015 Gaudí Award for best film, the Public Award at the 2014 Montreal Film Festival and the 2015 Circle of Spanish Screenwriters Medal for the script, as well as being nominated for the 2015 Goya Award for the best screen adaptation. Pontas Films has coproduced Cold Skin, by director Xavier Gens (adapted from the novel by Albert Sánchez Piñol) and The Solar System, directed by Bacha Caravedo and Chinón Higashionna (an adaptation of the play by Mariana de Althaus), both of which were released in 2017.
