About

(01)
Founded in 2009, Margate House Films creates commercial content that is intimate and reflective of relevant, real world issues.

Our passion started as kids shooting movies in our backyard and has since taken us all over the world.

Whether a project is destined for the big screen, a streamer or traditional networks, it all begins with a good story.

At Margate, we discover, develop, finance and produce those stories into premium content while maintaining the personal touch of a home movie.

Marked by moments of gentle humanity and arid beauty... Conor Allyn’s No Man’s Land turns the border between Texas and Mexico into a gateway to racial empathy.

When a vigilante border patrol turns fatal, a man flees on horseback to Mexico, seeking forgiveness from the victim's father. IFC Films released the film theatrically in January 2021 in 250+ theaters despite the pandemic. In theaters, the film was the #2 box office new release on opening weekend.

Timely, poignant, strong performances and astute direction.

Comments memorably on the immigration crisis. It’s wise and empathetic and worth a watch.

In Monterrey, Mexico, a young street gang spends their days dancing to slowed-down cumbia and attending parties. After a mix-up with a local cartel, their leader is forced to migrate to the U.S. but quickly longs to return home.

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2020, Netflix acquired the film. It was the official Oscar entry for Mexico and was shortlisted at the 2021 Academy Awards.

It's a deceptively dimensional portrayal, that of someone who worries his stage is getting smaller and smaller. And in Frias' magnetic feature is enough spirit, sound and artistry to give his journey a meaningful spotlight.

The real life adventures of Sir James Brooke, who defied the British Empire to rule a jungle kingdom in 1840s Borneo, embarked on a lifelong crusade to end piracy, slavery and head-hunting, and inspired “Lord Jim” and “The Man Who Would Be King.” Samuel Goldwyn Films released the picture in June 2021 and it was the #1 new VOD release of the weekend.

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2020, Netflix acquired the film. It was the official Oscar entry for Mexico and was shortlisted at the 2021 Academy Awards.

A historical epic that isn't afraid to take its time, Edge of the World is held together by a fantastic central performance by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and a beautifully brutal climax.

The sun may have finally set on the British Empire, but at least it hasn’t yet set on this mode of storytelling.

At long last, Sir James Brooke finally gets his due on film. And it really is a terrific film.
