MIPCOM Spotlight: FilmRise


FilmRise’s library includes My Friend Dahmer, about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s high school years, and The Boy Downstairs, starring Zosia Mamet as a girl who relocates to New York only to find out that her ex lives in the apartment below her.

Learning to See: The World of Insects is about Robert Oelman, who left his psychology career in the early 1990s to pursue photography. Marjorie Prime stars Jon Hamm, Geena Davis, Tim Robbins and Lois Smith. The movie explores memory and identity, love and loss. “As a well-capitalized company, we are able to acquire a plethora of outstanding films and offer them to our current partners,” says CEO Danny Fisher. “At this year’s market, we look forward to creating new opportunities with our present partners, while also entering into new partnerships with others.”

Fisher adds, “FilmRise has successfully become a leader in the digital market by embracing the opportunities surrounding the content-driven industry.”
