About Us


19Twelve Films is a film investment fund specifically designed for equity investors to enter the film sector with a risk-mitigated, tax-credit driven film slate model. Because we are producing several films we are able to reduce the risk that one would have investing in an individual film.

Our mandate is to fund films developed by New Mexicans with New Mexican writers, producers and directors attached. Not only does this provide job
opportunity for our artists and craftspeople, it also means that all these elements – in contrast to most films shot here – will be eligible for the New Mexico film tax
credit, significantly reducing the net cost of each film we produce. Creating rewarding local job opportunities while saving money? Yes, please.

ROI & Timeline Overview

Our intent is to distribute all three films theatrically, concurrent with or proceeding a streaming or other home entertainment release.

Based on comparable films, we estimate a 334% ROI from box office revenues plus the final New Mexico Film Tax Rebate. Theatrical revenues are estimated to be on a 2-3 year timeline from commencement of our first production.

These returns can continue to grow with Streaming, TVOD, AVOD, DVD, and other forms of distribution for years to come.

This is your opportunity to enter the ever-growing film production space with 19Twelve Films. We would love to share our investor packets for each film with you. The packets outline the film’s commercial marketability, potential revenue streams, comparable film financials, scripts, and budgets for each project.

We’re also offering some fun perks for investors including credit on each film, premiere tickets, cast meet and greets, set visits and more!
