Minima Films was founded more than a decade ago by Arsalan Baraheni, a Canadian filmmaker. The company is based in Toronto, Montreal, New York and Los Angeles. Minima Films started as a film production company which later expanded into five departments in production, distribution, rentals, advertising and publicity.
The films of the company have screened in over 30 cities in the U.S. and Canada. The company has partnered up with various film festivals, distributors, sales agents, producers, and cinemas in Canada and U.S.
The company has produced films in both fiction and documentary. The company is also the producer, organizer and sponsor of Montreal Independent Film festival which has turned into one of the most popular film festivals on FilmFreeway with over five thousand submissions every year.
