LIBERT!NE P!CTURES was founded in 2013 to bring together exceptional talent and make bold and innovative film and television that excites audiences around the world.
We’re here to identify, nurture and work with outstanding filmmakers on outstanding projects; to harness the creativity of our industry’s leading talent and produce original, affecting screen stories. At the heart of what we do is a creative environment that encourages the most ambitious, powerful and distinctive film and television. Libertine Pictures was formed by producers Richard Fletcher and Paul Davis and writer Neil Cross, partnered with a group of practitioners with experience across the industry. It brings the complementary expertise of its principals together with talented filmmakers and senior distribution and sales professionals, both in New Zealand and internationally.
Our filmmaking partnerships represent a cross section of emerging and established talent: Cliff Curtis, Ainsley Gardner, Trevor Haysom, Thomas Robins and David Stubbs, Taika Waititi and Chelsea Winstanley, and David White. These filmmakers have been associated with some of New Zealand’s best box office achievements and their films have been selected and won prizes at the world’s leading festivals as well as many local film awards.
Libertine Pictures is built on long-standing creative relationships, both internally with Neil Cross, and externally via our filmmaker partnerships. Sharing our skills, resources and expertise, we want to partner with other filmmakers who can demonstrate a strong and distinct creative voice combined with a passion to make film and television that can reach a wide audience.
