Founded by Andrew van den Houten during his college years, Andrew began producing and directing a number of award-winning short films including the 2005 multiple award winning Headspace, MODERNCINÉ's first full-length feature. Headspace began a winning streak for Van den Houten producing Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door and Home Movie (directed by Christopher Denham [1]) which  received favorable reviews at Montreal's [2] 2008 Fantasia Film Festival [3].

ModernCine's films heavily rely on the support of the fans first as we are a fully independently run company. The first screening for potential distributors
