About

MISSION STATEMENT

Completion Films is committed to the development and production of globally dynamic feature films (and occasionally documentaries) directed by some of the most talented filmmakers from Africa. Our unique background in both the American and African film market allows us to provide these filmmakers with the support and guidance necessary to create a path towards exposure to a wider global audience. Our development slate also includes an array of historical and social films. We develop our feature content through our first-look deal with Focus Features, where our unique relationship and mandate in seeking out African content has also led to the creation of the Focus Features Africa First Short Film Program.

In addition to the development and production of feature films, COMPLETION FILMS also utilizes our unique background in the US and African film market to partner with global companies and organizations to produce customized events and conferences. Learn more about our events here.
