We`re Metamora Films


Metamora Films is on a mission.  The power of independent and meaningful films is evident in our world today.  Metamorphosis is defined as a change into something new: a new person, new thoughts, a new understanding.  Metamora is just that: Change. (hence our cool butterfly logo)


In addition to our award winning film productions, we produce thought-provoking journalism including the interview show, ‘Solitary Nation‘, a podcast focused on America’s broken criminal justice system.  Produced and distributed by Metamora Films, ‘Solitary Nation‘ is a must watch for all ages.


Our team is available to host public film screening events throughout the country.  We also enjoy connecting with charities in order to fund raise in conjunction with our releases.  When we released our first documentary, ‘What Makes Me Tic?‘, we raised funds for the Tourette Association of America.


Metamora Films and it’s partners are committed to creating educational and thought provoking films and projects resulting in a more emotionally engaged society.  Our mission is to assist in expanding compassion and tolerance in order to better understand our differences and similarities.
