We do so by utilizing our strong global industry connections, in all areas of production, distribution marketing strategy and sales.
Iris Arc Pictures is an inclusive company and is proud to be a part of the diverse narrative of the world around us, be that in the stories we tell or the people that lead and tell those stories. We champion change in the industry, with representation of everyone on and in the content we create. A key focus is female stories told on camera and the incredible people behind the camera that are integral to bringing these stories to life.
