MINDY GOLDBERGMindy Goldberg is the founder of Epoch Films. She formed the company in 1989 with a vision of creating a place for talented young directors to gain access to the otherwise restricted commercial marketplace. Today, 27 years later, Epoch is a leading commercial production company with offices in New York and Los Angeles. During her tenure at Epoch Films, Goldberg is proud to have helped launch and build the careers of a strong contingent of successful commercial directors. Continuing her support of independent filmmakers, she has recently added Martin de Thurah, Alma Ha’rel, Zachary Heinzerling, Emily Kai Bock, and Michael Lawrence to the Epoch roster.
In 2005, Goldberg began Epoch’s push into feature films. The first film Goldberg produced under the Epoch banner was JUNEBUG, directed by Phil Morrison and released by Sony Pictures Classics. The film earned an Independent Spirit Award for Amy Adams as well as an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress. In 2008, Goldberg produced GIGANTIC, which premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
Goldberg produced two films in 2013: GOODBYE TO ALL THAT, the directorial debut of JUNEBUG writer, Angus MacLachlan, which premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and was distributed theatrically by IFC; and LOW DOWN, the first narrative feature film by Epoch director and partner, Jeff Preiss, starring John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, and Glenn Close. The film had a worldwide theatrical release, received The Excellence in Cinematography Award at the Sundance Film festival, and won the Best Actress Award for Elle Fanning at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Czech Republic.
Goldberg is continuing to build Epoch’s diverse slate of talent, and is developing various film and television projects.
