As a leader in the global independent film community, Cornerstone provides strong curatorial direction and years of industry experience to producers, financiers, and creative storytellers. We deliver the vital link between the creative vision and the successful global exploitation of content. Our enthusiastic and experienced team is headed by Alison Thompson and Mark Gooder who launched the company in 2015 and have devoted their careers to supporting producers and directors to bring their stories to the screen. With sales offices in London and Los Angeles, we also co-develop and produce content with our associates in Europe – X-Filme and Beta Cinema – and in Australasia we founded distribution and production company, The Reset Collective, with our partners Genesius Pictures and Lisa Garner.
