Minerva Productions was founded by Anne O’Shea in 1996 as a theatrical production company in Wilmington, North Carolina whose primary intention was to give women more opportunities both in front of and behind the footlights. With the inclusion of Brian Quattrini and Hal Cosec, it expanded to include film in 2009 and immediately achieved success with the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe winning and Oscar nominated film, The Kids Are All Right. The mission now includes children, the LGBTQ community and all other undeserved and often ignored factions of modern society that need a voice both locally and globally.
