WHO WE ARE
Vernon Films is a female led production company, founded in 2012 by Romanian-born sisters Mara Adina and Ilinca Calugareanu.
Working primarily with female directors, we produce commercially driven independent cinema. Our films push the boundaries of hybrid storytelling, blurring the line between fiction and documentary, in order to build immersive, authentic and impactful work that reaches the widest possible audiences.
We are driven by our love for daring cinema and a belief that compelling and surprising stories will always find an audience.
We take projects on from early development to finance, package, manage production and find world distribution for them though our wide network of equity funders and international buyers. We are committed to working with creative auteur directors on passion projects which have the scope and range to become commercially successful films.
Vernon films is globally represented by MAJORITY for commercials, branded content and music videos.
