Founded in 2009 by filmmaker Darine Hotait, Cinephilia Productions is an independent film production house based in New York City specializing in the production of narrative short, feature and animation films.

Cinephilia produces original and daring content with an emphasis on striking visuals from all corners of the world. Cinephilia's favorite genres are auteur, fantasy, cerebral and science fiction. All in all we like the unusual.

Cinephilia has a strong affiliation with the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia through its Screenwriting and Directing Lab programs that aim at discovering new voices in the art of filmmaking from the region. By developing and producing projects from MENASA, we aspire to promote cultural diversity, content originality and high standards of storytelling through this initiative.
