BMP Films was started to create documentaries and narrative films which tell intimate human stories; compelling and emotional accounts of real life events.
Our previous films include VALENTINE ROAD, which unravels a well-publicized and complex story of a shooting in a middle school classroom of a 15-year old gay teen by a fellow student. The documentary first played at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in the documentary competition and then premiered on HBO.
In 2007 BMP released our first documentary, AUTISM: The Musical, which premiered on HBO and later played on OWN. The film won two prime-time Emmy’s – one for Outstanding Non-Fiction Special and the other for Outstanding Picture Editing for Non-Fiction Special – as well as numerous audience and jury awards at festivals worldwide.
