Our deal

Sandbox Films is a mission-driven film company that specializes in creative and boundary-breaking documentaries rooted in scientific ideas that inform society and culture. Officially launched in 2020, our films include Fire of Love (dir. Sara Dosa), All Light, Everywhere (dir. The Anthony), and Fireball (dir. Werner Herzog), and have premiered at top-tier festivals around the world – including Sundance (where we won jury prizes in back-to-back years), SXSW, Telluride, Tribeca, Toronto, and CPH:DOX. These feature-length titles have gone on to be acquired and released by the worlds largest distributors and platforms — including Netflix, National Geographic Documentary Films, Apple Original Films, NEON, BBC, and PBS, among others.  More about our approach.

Our vibe

All of the excitement and opportunity of a startup with all of the stability and cozy benefits of an established institution (were 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). Were headquartered in NYC (shiny new offices/studio being built now).

Our commitment

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 cant accomplish any of this if we dont 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.
