Our Mission

Couch Film Collective aims to redefine narrative filmmaking by changing the types of stories told about underrepresented communities and by working to get members of these communities behind the camera at all levels of production.

We are an intersectional group that produces and supports equitable and inclusive projects that hire at least 51% self-identifying women/non-binary folx, 30% BIPoC, and are LGBTQIA+ inclusive.

Our History

In 2015 several women from diverse backgrounds within the film industry came together determined to confront the palpable gender disparity in the entertainment industry.

Their revolutionary idea? Instead of wasting energy vilifying the lack luster status quo, what if we create a new paradigm of our own? What if we changed the rules of the game?

By combining our time, money, energy, stories, gear, expertise, network equity, and ingenuity the Collective seeks to reclaim power and create our own work on our own terms.
