Ciné Tribe is a group of (early stage) projects aligned toward a single purpose: an entertainment industry based on independent voices, free from corporate cultural conditioning and geo-political agendas.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
In the beginning, there was the Edison Trust; the Independents went west, and in time, became the Majors. Many great films were made, until they lost sight of the public. Then came ‘Easy Rider’, a cheaply made movie that showed audiences were elsewhere. ‘New Hollywood’ was born and a decade (70s) of personal cinema followed.
Seeing the profit potential of movies made by people with something to say caused a complete buy-up by the multinational conglomerates; movies were now green-lit by impersonal corporations. This unfortunate situation gave rise to the 90s and another independent movement within cinema, showing audiences were actually real people, not focus groups. But, again, the independents became dependent (on corporate boards and committees) when they were all bought up by the majors… again.
In 2020, when media is about as dark and manipulative as it’s ever been, a New Wave of Independent Voices are coming; and audiences are waiting. This New Movement isn’t going to go west, or go to film school, or converge around a film festival (alone), but will be Global and Connected simultaneously.
Ciné Tribe is on the forefront of the New Wave.
Productions require a financial basis. Great productions require authentic individuals throughout. Ciné Tribe is actively rebalancing the art / business dynamic. And best of all, audiences want media that inspires, not culturally conditions through the advanced techniques of PR firms and worse.
We must empower the individual in every area of the industry. The only ‘messages’ we want in film & TV are those of unaffiliated individuals; free thinkers who live authentic lives, and seek to express what they find.
In light of all this, Ciné Tribe exists by a short list of principles:
- EVERY INDIVIDUAL is special and treated as such.
- We’re each dedicated to World Class Professionalism in our work.
- Our work (through varying levels of subtext) is to cultivate a healthy, more enlightened humanity.
- Life is governed by quantum principles, not predetermined mechanistic processes.
- Being the most powerful medium, the CINEMA EXPERIENCE is to be protected and revitalized.
- For our service to flourish, a holistic (which includes financial) loop must be maintained between artist creators and excited audiences
