Opening up the Umbrella

Established in 2001 as a home entertainment company by Managing Director, Jeff Harrison, Umbrella Entertainment has been a fixture on the theatrical landscape in Australia and New Zealand since 2009.

We acquire international and Australian feature films and documentaries from conceptual stage to finished products. Umbrella’s commitment to release is second to none with a dedicated theatrical sales and marketing team delivering tailored campaigns for the full life of each title from theatrical release.

Our 2017 theatrical slate offers a mix of high quality films for Australian and New Zealand lovers of cinema. On the back of the successful releases of the Australian comedy BACKYARD ASHES, the AACTA award winning best film THE BABADOOK and Fred Schepisi’s WORDS AND PICTURES, we will also be releasing TRESPASS AGAINST US Starring MICHAEL FASSBENDER (X-Men, Shame) and BRENDAN GLEESON (Calvary, In Bruges), and featuring an original score from the Chemical Brothers, TRESPASS AGAINST US is set across three generations of the rowdy Cutler family, who live as outlaws in some of Britain’s richest countryside – hunting hares, ram-raiding stately homes and taunting the police.

We value our relationships and our deep connections to the exhibition community, we take pride in our ability to nurture our films and look forward to working with you to bring more vital important stories to our screens.
