About The Cinemart

Since 2011, The Cinemart has repeatedly examined and illuminated core issues facing humanity with award-winning programming. The company exposed racial extremism in the heartland with Welcome to Leith, which premiered in competition at Sundance and was nominated for an Emmy. Working with Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, The Cinemart reached hundreds of millions of people, raising awareness for criminal justice reform with Time: The Kalief Browder Story and tracking the inception of the BLM movement in Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. These seminal projects earned the team a Peabody Award and multiple Emmy nominations and have stood the test of time, frequently topping essential viewing lists for social justice and racial equity.

In 2019, The Cinemart partnered with Hulu to release Fyre Fraud, a true-con about social media influencers and a failed music festival in the Bahamas. A stunt release authored and executed by The Cinemart made the film a smash hit, garnering an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program." In 2020 the company released The Pharmacist for Netflix, which showcased one man's 20-year journey to solve his son's murder and combat the opioid epidemic. The show was a standout hit for the streamer and has since been adapted into a scripted feature. In September 2021, the company released LuLaRich for Prime Video and the new true-comedy examining multilevel marketing and the patriarchy exploded on social media and the streaming platform, becoming one of the biggest docuseries of the year.

Heading into 2022, The Cinemart is developing and producing multiple new hard-hitting projects and the company continues to debut critically-acclaimed documentary events for hundreds of millions of viewers globally.
