Sandbox Films is an Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning production company that specializes in creative and boundary-breaking documentaries rooted in scientific ideas that inform society and culture. Launched in 2020, our films include: FIRE OF LOVE (currently nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature; “Hands down, documentary of the year,” according to Rolling Stone); ALL LIGHT, EVERYWHERE (Sundance 2021 special jury prize winner; released by Neon and Hulu); FIREBALL (co-directed by Werner Herzog; released by Apple); FATHOM (which won an Emmy Award for Best Sound in a Documentary); and HUMAN NATURE (which was nominated for three Emmys). Our films have premiered at top-tier festivals around the world –including Sundance (winning jury prizes in back-to-back years), SXSW, Telluride, Tribeca, Toronto, and CPH:DOX. Sandbox Films productions have gone on to be acquired and released globally by the world’s leading platforms and distributors —including Netflix, National Geographic Documentary Films, Apple Original Films, NEON, BBC, and PBS, among others. Sandbox Films, LLC is funded by the Simons Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the frontiers of scientific research.
All of the excitement and opportunity of a startup with all of the stability and cozy benefits of an established institution (we’re powered by the Simons Foundation). We’re a small and hardworking team (we already have about 20+ feature-length films completed or in the works). We’re perfectionists (who also welcome alternate points of view). We’re headquartered in NYC (shiny new offices/studio being built now).
One of the founding motivations for launching Sandbox Films is to make science documentary more inclusive. In addition to increasing diversity onscreen, we seek to collaborate with artists behind the camera who have different experiences, backgrounds and perspectives. We can’t accomplish any of this if we don’t extend the same philosophy to our workplace. As such, we are committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive work environment. Sandbox Films actively seeks a diverse applicant pool and encourages candidates of all backgrounds to apply. We provide equal opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic disposition, neurodiversity, disability, veteran status or any other protected category under federal, state and local law.
