WE CREATE, DEVELOP
AND PRODUCE STORIES
Our award-winning films encompass a wide variety of subjects from personal stories and the music business, to crime, pop culture and comedy, with a focus on director-driven features.
The projects we’ve produced have screened at top international film festivals, including Sundance, Toronto and Berlin and have been released theatrically and on TV in over 100 countries and on digital platforms worldwide.
In addition to developing and producing our own work, we partner with other US and international producers and production companies on creative and critically acclaimed film and television projects for the global market. Companies we’ve worked with include HBO, Sky Atlantic, Showtime, ZDF/Arte, Canal+, Dogwoof, BBC, PBS, Passion Pictures, CInereach, IFC Films, Zeppers Film and TV, Story AB and many others.
The Hard Working Movies family is a mix of talented, experienced, hard working and passionate storytellers. We develop, create and produce films with strong characters who have important, inspiring and entertaining stories to tell.
