Finestrino Film Co.

We are a film production studio focused on visual storytelling. With roots in event films, documentaries, and experience on major Hollywood productions, we bring a signature look to films for businesses, brands, artists, and makers of beautiful things. We work hard and aren’t afraid to dream big.

We complete projects with passion and professionalism. We believe that the personal hopes and fears that make us feel the most alone are exactly what we share in common. Sharing these goals and challenges is what connects people.

Our name, Finestrino, comes from an Italian word that means “little window.” Our core values come from Italian traditions of family, generosity, and attention to detail. The film set is our table and the stories shared here are worth sharing with a friend.
