ABOUT US
ABOUT 

Any independent filmmaker will tell you, the hardest part about bringing one’s artistic vision to life is getting it out in front of that all-important audience. With the rapidly changing face of the industry, through technological advancement and an overabundance of viewing platforms, independent filmmakers find themselves being squeezed out of a market dictated by big studio supply-and-demand. To address this concern, Borderlands Media LLC was established in 2015 to bring a fresh, new approach to independent motion picture distribution.

Here at Borderlands Media, we support talented, up-and-coming, ambitious storytellers, a commitment to first-class service, and a unified ambition to produce compelling and marketable content. Founded by filmmakers, we are a team of movie lovers who are dedicated to bringing you engaging entertainment from the Borderlands and beyond.
