Passion Pictures Films’ first documentary ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER, was conceived and produced by JOHN BATTSEK and went on to win an Academy Award in 1999. Passion has since been at the forefront of feature documentary production – as evidenced by a prolific run of multi-award-winning films, a reputation for securing international theatrical releases and – as of 2017 – an unprecedented twelve consecutive years premiering films at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
Notable titles include: RESTREPO, THE TILLMAN STORY, THE IMPOSTER, SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN, WINTER ON FIRE, HILLSBOROUGH and LISTEN TO ME MARLON – these films, amongst others, see Passion collaborate with some of the most exciting filmmakers, writers, journalists, editors, composers, cinematographers and production partners working in the industry today. We hope that our films connect, move and inspire through the power of extraordinary true stories.
