So, what does Fifth Floor do? We are in the business of movie development and production independently and/or through collaboration with various entertainment and private entities. Fifth Floor’s mission is to become a leading independent motion picture, television and media production company. In 2011, Fifth Floor launched its commercial media division, Fifth Floor Media Group, a project that had been in the making since 2009. In 2013, Fifth Floor launched it’s Television division.
Other than key attachments, much of the cast and crew for our projects come from the DFW metroplex, which has a direct, positive impact on the talent pool available in the area and creates jobs for Texas industry professionals. All features produced at Fifth Floor premiere in Dallas, before anywhere else, further stimulating the Texas film industry.
We have made it our primary goal to bring high quality entertainment, not only to Texas, but to the entire world, whether you see our movies at an art-house theater, large multi-screen cineplex, on DVD/Blu-ray, or another home entertainment medium.
Please note that Fifth Floor Pictures is not a film finance company and all projects produced at Fifth Floor are currently developed from within. Therefore, Fifth Floor Pictures does not accept screenplay submissions at this time.
We are in the business of movie development and production both independently or through collaboration with various entertainment entities.
