Naked Edge Films (NEF) produces and executive produces documentary films. NEF is dedicated to working with entrepreneurial documentary filmmakers through capital investment, consultation, and co-production. We are all about great non-fiction stories and characters, and the filmmakers who want to bring them to life. Our films are boldly told yet nuanced, intimate yet globally relevant, and have strong potential for critical and commercial success. We also develop and produce narrative remakes of documentary films.
Since it’s founding, NEF has produced and/or financed more than a dozen films that have been released theatrically and aired/streamed on channels including DirecTV, Discovery ID, HBO, Netflix, PBS and Showtime in the US, and worldwide including on ARTE, CBC, NHK, More 4, and VPRO, among others. NEF has won numerous awards including an Oscar, two DuPont Silver Batons, multiple Emmy nominations, and tens of festival awards.
NEF partners with filmmakers:
- To make the best film possible by offering assistance on all creative and business aspects of development, production and post-production
- To provide critical funding and to assist in the raising of additional funding — including equity, loans, grants and pre-sales — to ensure that the film is properly capitalized
- To market and promote the film, including the development and execution of a festival and release strategy, online presence, and public relations campaigns
- To distribute the film, by developing and executing a worldwide sales strategy, including television, theatrical, digital, non-theatrical and ancillary rights
We consider films at any stage of production and year-round.
