About Cellar 13 Films

Our Mission
Our mission is simple- to make films that not only stir the imagination, but films that will wake your brain up and get you thinking. It doesn’t matter if we make a 5 minute film, a feature, or a series; we always want to keep spice in our art, and we want to take ALL of the film cliches out of our projects. One of our motto’s is, “together we will reach the world.” We aren’t here to bow down to the corporate puppet masters, we aren’t going to be told what “they” think society wants to see on the silver screen; we will put out films that tingle with thought provoking material.

What We Do?

Foremost, Cellar 13 films© is a film company that thinks outside the box; normality doesn’t really exist here. Driving inside the lines is redundant and boring. We like to venture out and see what part of the artistic world hasn’t really been explored. We are the film company equivalent to Star Trek- we boldly go where no one has gone or is too afraid to go. We will be creating thought provoking films that cover several genres, and we will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions with every film that we make. But most of all, we will be creating unforgettable art, art that will be burned in your memory for the rest of your life. Our goal may not be for you to remember the entire film, but there will certainly be at least one part of a film that will follow you around like a remora fish.

At Cellar 13 Films© we are huge proponents of, “if you can dream it, it can become a reality.” We believe in art, we believe that everyone interprets art in their own way, and we hope that our interpretation will span the globe and create a buzz. That there is a new film company that has exploded on the scene and isn’t afraid to walk up to the edge of life and shout with all of our vigor and love for the independent film artistry. We are a company that isn’t afraid to push the boundaries, to tell the stories that people shy away from, and we aren’t afraid to take a project that seems impossible. As artists, we certainly know that we can’t please everyone. In fact, we know that there are people out there that you just can’t please.
