Working With Us

Pitching Films

Thank you for your interest in Kartemquin Films. While the majority of our work stems from our core group of associates, we are interested in building relationships with other social-issue documentarians and supporting independent filmmaking. To this end, we offer several avenues of possible collaboration.

Kartemquin Films are Executive Produced by Kartemquin leadership, at least 10% of the budget goes toward services provided by Kartemquin, and they are on Kartemquin’s financial books. Kartemquin gives projects a home and filmmakers utilize our staff, offices, marketing expertise, fundraising experience, equipment and storage facilities. We ask that prior to contacting Kartemquin, filmmakers prepare their proposal (including budget, fundraising plan, distribution plan, and outreach ideas) and make sure that their project resonates with our mission and history. Please contact if you are ready.
