March Forth Productions is committed to developing and producing works by artists that expand the aesthetic horizon of theatrical and motion picture storytelling. We seek intrepid storytellers who create visceral and thought provoking tales without concern for convention or boundaries. We work to ensure these artists have a safe, supportive, and constructive environment for their art, allowing the movers and shakers of our industry to become the most they can be. Through the cultivation of their art we create stories that challenge audiences and artists alike to question the world in which they live, giving them the impetus to change it for the better.
