About Us


Filmmakers for Filmmakers

Post FactoryNY Films has deep roots in New York’s independent film community. Filmmaker Alex Halpern founded Post FactoryNY, in 1996 with a single Avid and a friend’s borrowed apartment. By day he rented the Avid to other filmmakers, and by night he edited his award-winning documentary Nine Good Teeth. Initially, his plan was to complete the film, sell it and the Avid, and go off to direct his next movie. During that first year, however, Alex realized that New York’s film community needed a new kind of post-production company – one with the flexibility and technology to serve the needs of all filmmakers, from the smallest indies to the biggest studio movies. Thus Post FactoryNY was born. Nine Good Teeth premiered on HBO and the BBC in 2002.

In 2009, Post FactoryNY launched a full service production company under the banner of Post FactoryNY Films. Our goal is to create a space where filmmakers, who might not get funding, equipment, or space through the usual channels, can come and have access to the best technology and collaborate with the best people in the business while keeping their costs down. PFNY Films has been an executive producer of director Ira Sachs’ feature Keep the Lights On (an official selection of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival), Michael Almereyda’s haunting Paradise, and Brian Iglesias’  bracing Chosin. In 2011, PFNY Films launched its own slate of pictures, with the goal of highlighting Halpern’s work as a director. The company’s first feature, Eskimo Brothers, will begin shooting in 2014.
