Original music will be composed by the Romanian-born French composer Vladimir Cosma (The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe, Diva).

Octav is produced by Adela Vrînceanu Celebidachi through Astra Entertainment in coproduction with Oblique Media and CelebFilms UK. The Romanian National Film Center is supporting. The budget is 1.4 m EUR.
