Based in Los Angeles, CA, Flourishing Films is a boutique film sales agency founded in January 2016. The company made its domestic debut at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and its international debut at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival and European Film Market (EFM). Previously having worked in feature acquisitions at Paramount Pictures, the experience inspired its founder to begin a film rights sales business specifically to market and sell multi-genre films.
Flourishing Films' intent is to expand access to specific filmed content originating from the US, Africa, the UK and countries around the world. The company looks to identify strong, well-written and well-directed stories, target and market to specific global audiences in their respective territories, and offer all available rights to well-established, as well as new distribution companies and outlets with creative and innovative distribution structures.
