About us:

We are Coastal Independent Films LLC, and though we have all worked in the film industry together for many years, we only formed our little production company back in September of 2019. Since then, we have released several films, which you can see on our youtube page. We are currently in post-production on 2 films and pre-production on 4 more films counting this one and planning for 4 more by the end of the year. In addition to our features, we also release films about making films with lots of behind the scenes footage and “This is how you make a movie” sorts of things.

We do this for the love of filmmaking, and always release our films for free on our youtube channel. Check it out and subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCu66FcClixe0G5oM4dF5MIw/videos

Our marketing department also enters our films in festivals around the country. Currently our film “Thirst of the Dead” has been accepted in festivals in Charleston, Las Vegas, Chicago, Charlotte, Atlanta, and Indianapolis- hopefully with more to come. We also have one of our films, “X.I.A.”, playing on Amazon Prime (which was made before we were Coastal Independent Films). Look it up if you are a Prime subscriber.
