Pacific Mercantile Bank

The Entertainment Industries Division (EID) of Pacific Mercantile Bank was established specifically to serve the needs of the global entertainment business.  We finance movies and TV series as well as provide credit facilities for domestic and international distributors, post-production facilities and other related businesses. We are a full-service lender with the emphasis on service.  Our team has over 60 years of exclusive entertainment-related experience.  Our goal is to utilize that to provide you with financing solutions that promote the success of your business.  Whether you need production financing in the form of cash flowing pre-sales, tax incentives or gap for a specific project, or a borrowing base facility for your company, we can help!  If you’re shooting locally in California, elsewhere in the U.S. or around the world, our expertise can facilitate your production.  We know the global distribution business better than any other lender and that knowledge works in your favor to build a business and protect your capital.

We’re active at all the major film festivals in order to keep up-to-date with the market and establish direct relationships with international buyers.  You can also find us participating in conferences and seminars as we look to develop relationships with up-and-coming producers and other professionals.

In other words, we take the time to know your business so your business can grow and succeed in as many ways as possible.  Please feel free to contact us to discuss your financing needs and we’ll make you our first priority.
