CMP I/I financed movies have had award winning premieres at major film festivals like Sundance, Tribeca, and Toronto and have seen sales to some of the biggest film distributors, including Netflix, CNN, Amazon, Fox Searchlight, Sony Classics and Magnolia Pictures. CMP I/I investors are already beginning to recoup from earlier investments as our films move from production to distribution, in some cases within a 12 month time frame from investment (Eagle Huntress, Trophy, Icarus, Voyeur, and Step)
One of the more exciting aspects of being a CMP I/I investor is attending festival premieres of our films. This past January, many investors had the chance to attend five Sundance premieres of CMP I/I films that received huge critical attention and audience acclaim (306 Hollywood, Our New President, Bisbee ’17, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, and Of Fathers & Sons)
CMP I/I HAS TWO TIERS: CMP I/I AND CMPAC
CMP I/I regular tier members are able to make relatively modest equity investments in social impact documentary film projects. This tier is ideal for individuals interested in participating in “crowd-investing”: allowing them access to great projects and insight into the creative process, with the ability to recoup on a modest level.
Established in 2017, the CMPAC tier expands the opportunities for CMP I/I members to invest in film projects beyond the current limits of the CMP I/I regular tier. CMPAC members can make significant equity investments in high quality, independently produced documentaries that showcase compelling characters and subject matter, employ great storytelling, display a strong cinematic style and demonstrate high commercial appeal. CMPAC funded films are not limited only to social cause films. The CMPAC tier provides an additional vehicle for CMP I/I investors to financially support independent filmmakers who are making important, diverse, socially responsible non-fiction films that will achieve broad global visibility and distribution. In addition, CMPAC members will enjoy greater engagement with the film projects they invest in.
