Park Pictures and directors Terri Timely won the Cannes Lion Grand Prix in 2015 for their Unskippable Geico pre-roll campaign. Described by the jury as a campaign that “breaks every single rule of filmmaking…and you can’t take your eyes off it,” The Martin Agency and Terri Timely continued their relationship in four subsequent campaigns.
In 2012, Park Pictures Features debuted its premiere project with the Sundance hit Robot & Frank, directed by Park director Jake Schreier and starring Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Jeremy Strong, and Peter Sarsgaard.
Two of Park’s feature films premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival: God’s Pocket, directed by John Slattery and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Infinitely Polar Bear, directed by Maya Forbes and starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana. God’s Pocket was released by IFC Films, and Infinitely Polar Bear was picked up for distribution by Sony Classics.
In recent years, Park Pictures Features has produced many noteworthy films including Cop Car, directed by Jon Watts and starring Kevin Bacon, which premiered at Sundance in 2015 and was distributed by Focus Features. Park’s feature film Other People, directed by Chris Kelly and starring Molly Shannon and Jesse Plemmons, premiered at Sundance 2016. It was nominated for four Indie Spirit awards and Molly Shannon took home the award for Best Supporting Female. The film was also sold to Netflix. At Sundance 2017, Park’s film The Hero, directed by Brett Haley and starring Sam Elliot, premiered and was quickly acquired by The Orchard. Hearts Beat Loud, also directed by Brett Haley and an all-star cast including Nick Offerman, Kiersey Clemons, Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner, and Toni Collette, premiered at Sundance 2018.
In addition to Park’s extensive list of features, The Sentence, a documentary about Cindy Shank, a mother who is serving 15 years in federal prison for her involvement with a Michigan drug ring and the lives of her family, received the Audience Award for U.S. Documentary at The Sundance Film Festival in 2018 and was acquired by HBO.
