Jason Michael Berman – Producing 5 Sundance Films & Making it in Hollywood

SPECIAL SUNDANCE EDITION of the Indie Film Hustle Podcast

I had the honor of speaking to Jason Michael Berman at Sundance this year. He’s a Sundance vet. He has premiered 5 features at Sundance over the years and has the record for the highest selling film at Sundance ever, The Birth of a Nation which sold for $17.5 million. Crazy! This year he premiered the remarkable film Burning Sands at the festival. The film is about the intensifying violence of underground hazing on a college campus.

Jason dropped some great knowledge bombs in our interview with my co-host Sebastian Twardosz. Here’s a bit on Jason Michael Berman:

Jason Michael Berman is the Vice President of Mandalay Pictures, where he is responsible for developing and structuring financing for Mandalay’s slate of independent films, in addition to packaging projects.

Berman has produced feature films that have debuted at premiere film festivals around the globe, including the Sundance Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Tribeca, Berlinale, and Edinburgh. Berman was named by Variety in 2011 as one of the Top Ten Producers to Watch, and by Deadline Hollywood in 2012 as one of the Top Ten Producers to Watch at Sundance.

Berman produced Nate Parker’s The Birth of a Nation, starring Parker, Armie Hammer, Jackie Earle Haley, Gabrielle Union, and Penelope Ann Miller, about the true life story of Nat Turner’s slave rebellion. The Birth of a Nation premiered in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. – Wikipedia

All of these Sundance Series episodes are co-produced by Sebastian Twardosz from Circus Road Films and Media Circus.
