CollabFeature is a group of independent filmmakers from all over the world who have come together to create multi-director feature films. Each filmmaker writes and directs a small segment of a bigger story in his or her own country. By pooling our talents and resources, each work we create is bigger than the sum of its parts and reaches a greater audience than any of us could each on our own.
Current and Upcoming Projects
In 2012, CollabFeature premiered our first international collaborative film, “The Owner” in theaters all over the world. It has screened at multiple film festivals and has received the German IPTV Award for “Most Innovative Platform,” a Guinness World Record as well as extensive media coverage (CNN, the Huffington Post, the Times Of India and over sixty other media outlets.) “The Owner” is now available on DVD, BluRay and digital download. The film follows a backpack around the world, intersecting the lives of characters from every region of the world. It ties together 25 interconnected segments, each directed by a different filmmaker.
The second CollabFeature, “Train Station” (working title) is nearing completion. Stay tuned for festival and screening information in the next months. “Train Station” follows one main character who is played by different actors in different international cities. Each scene is filmed by a different director who continues the story, re-interpreting the situation in his/her own style. “Train Station” involves over 40 filmmakers in 26 countries.
CollabFeature’s newly launched project is a television series called “A Billion to One” that will give an artistic voice to hundreds of independent filmmakers from every part of the world. “A Billion To One” revolves around an American billionaire nearing the end of his life. Having no heir to his fortune, the man instructs his assistant to find him a “good” person to inherit his riches. What begins as a small search transforms into an international competition among a variety of characters, spawning the most diverse cast in television history. The series poses the underlying question, “Who in this world is worthy of a great fortune?”
We have completed many side projects and have several project ideas ready to go in the next months.
Each filmmaker who joins CollabFeature becomes a member of the team. You have a vote in every creative decision and will participate in writing, producing, directing, completing and promoting the film or series you join.
