Company Info:

Established in 1992 by Morris Ruskin, Shoreline Entertainment is one of the longest running and most well respected production companies and worldwide sales agents. With over seventeen years of experience in production and sales, it possesses a tactile network of hundreds of American distributors, from the majors to the upstarts, as well as more than seven thousand buyers worldwide. Per its participation at no fewer than ten major media markets a year, as well as most major film festivals, Shoreline positions itself to nourish continuous relationships with existing and prospective clients, as well as impress itself instantly upon new buyers.

Shoreline has brought hundreds of films to the marketplace. This year Shoreline represented four films in Sundance including The Maid, which won the Grand Jury Prize in World Cinema, currently in theatres per Elephant Eye Films, and was nominated for a 2010 Golden Globe for best Foreign Language Film. Most recently Shoreline acquired Southern District, Sundance 2010 official selection and Bolivia’s official selection for the Academy Awards.

In addition to its ubiquitous presence in the marketplace, Shoreline emphasizes generalized and specialized marketing to buyers the world over. Shoreline’s marketing profile includes a long-standing deal with the Hollywood Reporter for its back cover during the European Film Market, American Film Market and Marche Du Film (Cannes). Moreover, Shoreline’s marketing efforts include, but are not limited to, a multi-year deal with Screen International during the Toronto Film Festival, sponsorship of the Buyers Lounge during the American Film Market, sponsorships of film festivals, and specially-calibrated promotional email campaigns to its broad database of clients.

Shoreline is an entity that has only grown since its inception, despite the widespread sense that the independent film marketplace is in decline. Shoreline’s growth is a direct result of a sales team with decades of experience in entertainment sales, an executive with a wealth of produced films under his belt, and a lean, effective core staff. Likewise, all of these factors contribute to Shoreline Entertainment’s reputation as one of the most well-respected, well-known independent entertainment brands around the world.

Submission Details:
Shoreline is looking for commercially viable, completed films spanning all genres, from cast driven dramas and comedies, to thrillers, action, horror, and documentaries.
